3 pitches. Climb corner to chimney and belay from flake by small tree; move through chimney as it narrows to a crack and then traverse left via diagonal groove to belay ledge (VS 4b variation - avoid chimney by tackling left face to gain diagonal; move right along ledge 3m and then up for 5m. Follow crack to belay with nice bridging moves. Walk down to the right finding small cairns and steep but friendly descent gully

Found the move out of the cave really hard. Screwed up on the last pitch. Went off route and climbed straight up.
