LH bolt line on Freaky Wall. Climb through an overlap to ledges. Cross a short wall rightwards under a roof and gain another resting ledge. Now climb the desperate crimpy wall for about 5m to better holds and an easy finish.

The key is not clipping the last bolt until you get the good holds above it (and not falling off, obviously).

Worked out a sequence for the crux, but first fell off slopers before I even got there, then after jumping through this bit just didn't have enough left for the top.
