Transformer* V3 6a / V3
[Tricky moves on Transformer, 2 kb]The sharp arete is accessed from the right and gives a couple of taxing moves until Jackdaw Crack just to the right can be reached. Finishing straight up the arete is worth E3. © ROCKFAX

A good problem once you know the trick. Start on large undercuts at the right of the overhang and move left to the arete and get established on holds on the left side to finish. Jump off.
