Take the easiest line up the wall to the left of Pillar Variant, finishing to the right of the overhang. Protection mostly dodgy on flexing flakes, but lovely climbing.

Amazing, not as bold as everyone think, though some tricky enough moves.

Direct Start

No way the direct start is 4c, it's easier. Finishing via the roof is more like 4c though, and highly recommended!

Difficulty getting over the top! Rope, rock and belayer in the way. Got foot out to overhang and used it to push me up over the edge and rope.
