Did this properly today into The Plum. Tried this previously and did onsight it, but belayed 1/4 of the way up the plumb to go do another route.

Assumed this was the regular start as it seems most logical. Although, I noticed the right side approach whilst on the crux. Excellent gear but steep climbing on jams, and bridging which requires a forthright approach. Climbed through the roof after this which was good too. I'd recommend doing this start if you climb 'The Plum'.

Only the start onsight, the rest clean repeat. The initial crack improves the route the overhang above does not.

Thought this was the start for the Plum. Seemed pretty straight forward. Great route a bit of everything, no junk, but never sustained.
