The original chain setup has now been altered from what is shown in the photo. Negotiate your way easily along the chains starting at 'Weak Flesh' to a semi-hanging belay with a small ledge. Bring your partner along to join you. Bridge the open-book corner before moving out onto the righthand wall around mid-height then back into the corner for a thought-provoking finish.

Up the edges right of the belay then traverse left around the arete onto a narrow ledge system. Continue along the ledge to the far corner then up a couple of steep slabs. Layback and heel hook your way up the right leaning corner to the roof. Hand traverse left and rockover onto the belay ledge. 30m rappel to the ground.
