An eliminate up the short arete. © ROCKFAX
The arete to the right of the potting shed; an independently bolted line starting right of the potting shed. follow steep lower wall to big ledge below corner, climb right arete, with no bridging and no cheaky use of top flake on right, for full tick. Treat as an eliminate for the best climbing.

Though I used the large pedestal which, in hindsight, is probably out as it felt very easy.

couldn't decide what was in and what was out - 'the rules' are not in the rockfax - in the end, used the two big flakes, the arete and the very right jug of the conglomerate. felt about 6b+, pretty good.
