Rockfax Description
The right-hand crack-system continues the theme of excellence.
Start at a slight bulge with a good jug above it.
Pull onto the wall using the jug and continue to the overlap. Pull through the overlap and take the long crack to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Strenuous pull up to ledge then straight to overlap highest point; get feet up high with smears to make the overlap without difficulty and then straight up to obvious belay using old 'tat'

I wouldn't say the overlap is crossed 'without difficulty'. didn't notice the strenuous pull at the start though!

Mostly 4a climbing with a 5b move through the overlap, so let's call it 4c? 4b in Rockfax which is really silly.

It seems that the adjacent fin has collapsed onto the bottom of the route. No pull onto the wall needed, just step off the blocks.

It may have because I was a bit rusty, but the overlap move felt more like 5a to me. Well protected though, and easy above and below
