Waiting for the Barbarians** 6b+

Rockfax Description
The wall above the short corner is worthwhile. Start at the short corner in the low overhang. Move up through the overhang and pull left to a sloping ledge. Follow the shallow groove and wall above to a ledge below the upper wall. Climb direct to finish. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Start up the short corner of Peace in the Nineties. Pull out left onto a sloping ledge. The faint groove and wall above lead to a convenient bivouac ledge. The wall right of The Watchman is climbed via some lovable rugosities

Big (chalked) handhold broke off 2 bolts up, somehow managed to stay on and finished it. Hard pocket move higher up.
