Partner backed off at half height, the drizzle promptly stopped when I took the lead and found it a nice route - not sure how much of the wall on the right is "in" for the start, and had to contrive a hanging belay at the top as there wasn't anything obvious for me,

Start by working up the crack, very tricky moves although taller people can reach nice holds (although I fell off this part) after the initial stint becomes easier with reasonably good protection. Severe 4b in guidebook.
