|55m, 2 pitches. An outstanding route which follows a slanting line of weakness through hanging roofs up the wall.
1. 30m 5a From the bottom left of the wall traverse right for 3m and pull up through a bulge onto the wall. Climb up and rightwards to a roof and pull up on the wall on the right.

2. 20m 5a From the belay traverse left 4m and pull up on to the wall on the left of the crackline. Climb up and leftwards to finish on the arete.
