Just right of the central crack line is a hanging garden and immediately to its right a weakness penetrates the initial roof. Pull up into the groove using a concretion which forms a hole in the rock (BR) move left under a bulge on poor holds to gain a line of grooves (BR). Climb the initial groove past a wire slot (BR at top). Continue up the crack line friends and wires before exiting onto ledges and easier climbing long run out to BR. Step right then back round left and climb straight up past the bolt, easier climbing to good friend placements below the steep wall and the crux of the wall. There are three bolts on the wall, start at the bottom left and get established in the groove, hard climbing diagonally across the face to the arete, pull up awkwardly and gain a standing position below the steep arete above (BR). Move first left then swing right to an exposed position on the arete, finish up this to easier climbing. Tony Burnell
