Another classic, though being tall is helpful (if not essential) for the crux. Start as for Waves of Inspiration and at 6m swerve left past a bolt. A desperate series of moves gains a finger-hold. More challenging climbing is needed to pass the next bolt. Step up and then move left to the good crack and another bolt. Move up the crack passing a bolt out left where another tricky sequence leads to a large flat hold. Then move up directly past the last bolt to the top.
