  Starts from the ledge at the top of Crucifix. Follow the vegetated crack trending slightly L. on face left of arete on gear. This route is crossed by the 2nd pitch of Crown of Gorse which trends R. Would need cleaning. Finishes L of a block pillar as you look up.

Climbs the face and arete R of Crown of Gorse starting from the toe of the arete above the Crucifix Wall. Climbs the face left of the arete in the lower half and the face/arete higher up. A few holds vanished near the top and the bottom changing how it was meant to climb which might explain a few repositioned bolts.
