The original and best? A ramp on the lower tier leads to a heather cornice and belay on the ledge. Gain the slab with difficulty then pass the big pocket and then the notch in the roof. © ROCKFAX

Couldn't get established on the slab. Didn't feel that the bottom section added anything whatsoever to the route - recommend starting on the ledge.
jonny taylor - Lead dnf - 12/Apr/09

Neither of us could boulder out the first moves on the upper slab. Lower tier pitch pointless. Time to retreat!
