The groove system through the roofs at the LH end of the crag. Pull over the top roof rightwards to jugs which lead up left to the lower-off. Excellent climbing.

Reachy in places and felt tough for the grade, but then I'm rubbish at steep stuff. Loved (and definitely needed!) the no-hands rest before the crux.

Don't get sucked in to going left. Makes moving right around the buldge hard. Lol. I down climbed and went more direct a d much easer. Long reach helps.

Have tried this route a couple of years ago with Bide, crux seemed desperate. Turns out you can tackle the second overhang using good holds on the right, made it considerably more doable.
