A simply wonderful route, with some exposed terrain in space-walking territory. Start at the base of the abseil.
1) 5a, 15m. Climb the steep juggy corner to reach a good ledge below the steeper crag above.
2) 5c, 30m. Move up and right along some diagonal bands of rock. After 6m, move up to a steep wall and climb this, trending rightwards on good holds, to reach the lip of the roof/arete, where you can rock onto a small perch on a pleasant slab. Traverse right along the slab to a corner and down-climb this and then step right again to reach the belay.
3) 5c, 24m. From the belay, follow the cracks that lead up and right across the wall to a bulging overlap. Move left over this and carry on rightwards in the same direction as before up a groove to the top.
