A bit strenuous getting over the lip if you get your hands mixed up (which I did). Otherwise fairly easy route, it just needs a bit of 3D thinking!

Right-hand crack? Used the left more. Possibly off route?

Awkward move round the bulge to gain the upper cracks - a bit of a shredder route

Pile of crap. Went off route to the left and then up to get stranded for about an hour before managing to escape.
