A worthwhile route that follows a line just right of the abseil, starting 10m left of the huge groove of Scythe (not described). Climb on good holds to a thin crack in a smooth wall and follow it to the fault-line. Continue direct to cross a strip-roof. Use a crack to reach a short flake. Swing left then make a hard move through another overhang via a steep groove to an exit corner.

Well worth doing for the fine climbing on the crack in the lower half (crux). Tricky route finding through the top roofs and into the finishing corner but fairly steady. Take care with rope drag.

Did this again on Saturday but had to finish up grim reaper as the top section appeared to have suffered some rockfall. Still well worth doing and probably still e3 5c doing it that way but beware of rope drag.
