Start just left of the low shelf in the middle of the crag. Follow the bolts up to the roof, travers right to a pocket in the roof, breath and grunt through the roof cliping the tat on the way till a rest on the slab. Easy moves to finish.

Got on this after having to give up on Left Over Goods due to the blown stein pull there. Exciting clip as the crab is now just underneath the roof - best to stick a quickdraw on it. Got a heel over the roof to the right of the axes but couldn't pull up from that as it's all slopey above. There's a heel hook out left as well but couldn't reach it. Gave up!

Clip to clipped to the roof. Nothing desperate. Hung around below the roof for ages trying to get over it but couldn't get the heel hook to work. My excuse is the plastic heel clipper thing on the crampon gets in the way of a proper heel hook! Lowered off.

M8? Big set of moves to get over the roof. Makes Tumble seem easy! Still nearly had it with rests.
