Agag's Direct >>
Short and strenuous. Start in the niche, at the right end of the wall. Climb this, using jams and bridging, to join Agag’s Direct. The jamming can be avoided

Really enjoyed this climb, was unable to bridge the way Richard did, so went for the layback on the hanging crack on top inside right edge, superb bit of laybacking if I may say so! :-)
