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

Definitely feels more HS than S; even after getting onto the slab you have the crux of Agag's Direct to do!

The comedy value of this climb made it worthwhile. Getting out of the niche is tricky. Much harder than Severe though I felt
