An impressive line but with the occasional chipped hold. Start 4m right of Skylight, usually on a pile of blocks. Pull through the roof and move up to a hidden pocket to the left. Step right and gain the flake and follow this, and the wall above, to a break. Traverse right and finish up a crack - loose.

Cleaned 13/07/04. Should have long reach symbols for the first 3 moves, which along with the fourth constitute the crux. WARNING. Do not attempt to lower off the pegs or bolt at the girdle break. There is no lower-off and the gear is poor. One bolt pulled out under the body weight of the second!. Traverse right, with care, along the girdle (marked by an old bolt and pegs) to finish up a crack. This is the original finish despite what it says above!
