Flying Groove* VS 4c
[Flying Groove (VS), 3 kb]10m. Start 2m left of the huge overhang of the Prow. Climb the series of bulges on great rock but with minimal pro to the small roof at about 2/3 height. Slap a small cam into a horizontal crack and crank a tasty move up to some good holds on top of the buttress. Finish direct up the steep wall and belay on a choice of anchors.

There's buckets of gear on this route at the bottom if you look for it.

No sign of the suspect rock mentioned in the guide, certainly nothing on the Peak Scar/Whitestone scale!
