UKC Logbook Description
Start just right of the left arête of the crag and step across the void to an obvious crystal ledge. Move up to gain the obvious overhanging layback system that is followed to a small roof just below the top of the crag. Pull back left onto the arête, then swing up and right to the BB.

Steep and pumpy, but mostly good holds. 6b it gets in the Gower select guide seems fair.
