[Eyeing up the crux hold..., 1 kb]21m. An intense exercise up the blank-looking wall. Climb to the cleaned ledge at 4m. Move up and traverse left to a jug in the middle of the wall and make a difficult move up to the overlap. Go left again with interest to arrive at the easier upper wall. A variation goes up right of the bolt before the traverse reducing the grade of the route to 6b. © ROCKFAX

Hard crux to contemplate but turning out not all that bad. Required the right strategy, which for me involved getting the crux clipped up and a retreat, before committing to the sequence. Top quality climbing all round!
