The prominent wide crack plainly visible from the car park. One bolt leads into the crack proper where a selection of cams including a #3 and #4 will come in handy. At the top of the crack 3 bolts lead right to the ring belay.

Begin as for 'Immunity', clipping the first bolt on that route before traversing along the narrow ledge and around the arete. Bridge the corner and over the roof before moving out rightwards along a ledge and up onto a block. Up right of the crack and then drift left along a row of edges to 'Immunitys' belay .
