The imposing chimney is climbed on (very) polished holds to reach the balcony and a stance. Often green. Escape right across the top of the chimney or, better, finish through the overhang above the ledge by a couple of weird moves on jugs; S 4b.

Very hard for a Vdiff! The route is unbelivably shiney!

Was probably a good route before it got so polished.
THe direct finish is good.

The direct finnish is definately a S and good fun but the whole route is hard for a HVD.
