An awkward undertaking. Start as for Quo Vadis Direct.1) 5c, 20m. Climb into a niche and then up into a chimney/slot (2 threads). Break right to gain a blocky corner then traverse left, 4m along a break, beneath a strip roof. Climb into an open groove and belay on a perched ledge on the left.2) 5b, 8m. Ascend the groove above to a snappy finish. © Rockfax

Used to get HVS, PROPER HVS.
Seconded the first pitch, which was handy, as I got to see the end result of all the puzzling and climb it with perfect beta! Awkward, intimidating, adventurous - a really good way to spend an afternoon!! The top is dangerously loose though. Be careful not to knock a pile of rocks onto the second with the rope.
lead all fell on crux
