A good outing that takes in some intimidating territory. Start at a rightward slanting flake-crack in the wall right of Finale Groove. High in the grade.
1) 4b, 18m. Climb the juggy crack and its continuation to the fault-line. Traverse right to a ledge and belay next to a boulder.
2) 5a, 20m. The second pitch of Sweet SA.

Lovely route with two completely contrasting pitches, both VERY steep! Top pitch up the grey wall is definitely worth 5a; I moved back onto the wall rather than climbing the groove on the left as it's now looking rather vegetated and uninviting
