The left side of the main wall. A bolt protects the initial difficult move, then climb up to more gear then right and up to the horizontal break. Place cams in the break and commit to the finish up the bulging wall above.

One would presume that John finished up over the nose and that Private Hell takes the faint corner L of Salisbury Hill, with ugly fall potential onto the ledge. Great finish over the nose . It is quite nice starting SH climbing L of the bolt up the arete , slinging a flake and stepping left above the bolt to the obvious slot that provides gear.
