Interesting, well protected - do it. Starting from off the top of the ferny rock at the front RH corner of the Stronghold (the ferns have been worn off now), rock over onto the sloping ledge and traverse left awkwardly, clipping two bolts before swinging out onto the solid slab above. Angle rightwards to a ring right on the apex of the block.

Up onto ledge below 'Homecoming Queen' then traverse L along the ledge and out onto slab. Up the edge of the slab where it steepens to vertical then around left and up to ring. Retrobolted in 2023.

Up the centre. Contrived, but nevertheless a bit scary.
