[Agra HVS 5b, Slipstones., 2 kb]7m. Pull past the overlap then traverse out left to a good ledge. The centre of the roof requires a bit of a tussle. The Wimp's Finish heads all the way to Ulfer's Crack to avoid the roof, VS 4b. © ROCKFAX
Traverse that slab leftwards to a ledge beneath the roof. Climb the roof via the obvious weakness.

Always wanted to Solo, but to be honest i was glad to be there with someone wanting to lead it too, It's high and could be read wrong. Great roof, quality.
