Rockfax Description
A mini-expedition starting on up a tough chimney then a ramble along the crest of the flake with an optional belay on the way. The exit is loose. A direct start up a groove is a steep VD. © ROCKFAX

Went straight up at the end instead of left onto the slab. Couldn't set up and anchor so I had to down climb to the slab to set up haha

This was meant to be an easy warm-up to an evening's climbing but was actually quite a formidable challenge in the wind and ended up being the only climb of the evening. I lead the route from the right-hand alternative start (straight up the quarried corner). I would grade this as VDiff or Severe. Certainly harder than Diff. Very enjoyable route.
