Okay, it's been climbed before but left criminally undescribed. Sit start the blunt right arete of the Zig Zag wall and climb it. Starts crouching at a LH sloper and RH crimp, up to a good RH hold, then a long stretch up and left allows a nice sequence up right to join Tam's route where you rock back left to finish up Zig Zag. Probably undescribed due to being hidden by elderberry bushes. It's the logical way up Fouk Ye using all available holds...

Sent a few minutes before the rain came on! Traverse next. Did the LH variation instead of direct: the direct rockover from the top of the arete has dirty holds above. So started along traverse then boosted to the Zig Zag jug. Great moves. LH way seems to be a bit harder than direct.
