Start as for The Jolly Logger, but veer left onto the slab below the roof as soon as you have good gear in the left hand crack. Step up and out left past the roof (crux), and continue up the easy crack to the top. Protection is fiddly and quite specific. Chain and ring anchor.

Climbed this route recently. Based on the description, the HH line on the topo is drawn incorrectly. There is a fixed wire at the start of the traverse. I attempted to remove this well over a year ago when abseiling the line to the right. I assume others have tried also, so the wire is fixed (?).

The HH line on the topo is actually the line for "Ton's route". The description is correct.
