Climb the groove rightwards below the overhangs. Hand traverse right and access the pedestal by a fun move or two. Stand up awkwardly and finish up the final wall.

Where does this route go? Turning the upper overhang on the right involves a hand traverse with no feet whatsoever followed by a ridiculous move onto a pedestal and an even harder move on slopers to stand up. "the final wall rightwards on good holds"? Where?

There are plenty of foot holds for the short hand traverse! The move onto the pedestal is great fun, and not too hard once you've worked iut out. As for "the final wall rightwards on good holds", well it's not reall a wall, just a couple of moves, and they're straight up not rightwards. And "goods holds" is a relative term, and for a VDiff/Severe leader, these holds are not good!
An excellent route though.
