A 'one-move-wonder' route up the narrow side slab. Start from a ledge 10m up on the arete.1) 4c, 30m. Climb the right-hand side of the slab to a break. Step up left and follow the centre of the slab to the top overlap. Pull through this by a crack in its centre and belay on the ledge above.2) 4a, 5m. Finish up the short wall at the back of the ledge. © Rockfax

Wasn't so keen on this. Not too well protected on somewhat fractured rock low down. Good, well-protected crux at the overlap but this is hard 5a (maybe more) if done direct at the cracks as described (easier on L as Charles discovered). The crack in the slab above the overlap is now full of vegetation. It may be easier if this hides a good hold. If there is one, I didn't find it.
Charles, Rob Davies
Avoided impossible hoik over the overlap by short traverse to the left ...
Led 2nd pitch

Some awkward bits of gear to remove.
Marion, John Norman
Charles led, Rich and I seconded.
Couldn't get over the break. Loose rock at the belay, not an enjoyable route.
care needed for top pitch.
