Big arms required for an untidy muscle up the first crack, but very easy after that.

Climbed a Left hand alternative finish which continued to follow the crack where the easy ramp goes off to the right. Move onto the break, left of the crack. Direct up the small slab using the arete to finish.

The difficulty of the start depends on how good you are at wide cracks. Top section was much easier. Quite pleasant.
