Another steep route with a surprisingly pushy crux between two hands off rests. Start left of the slanting crack and commit right and up to jugs and a useful ledge. Above this tricky moves lead to better holds into The Essential and respite. Traverse rightwards to finish on blocks, or more stylishly up The Essential.
