Climb the flake at the back of the overhang until it is possible to move left out to the roof. Make big moves through here onto the lip and traverse right until possible to move up to the ledge. Astonishing.

andi turner 16 Jul, 2006 Solo RP The 2nd, 3rd and 4th ascent after 18 years. Felt hard at E6 as oppose to 'reasonable for the grade' as stated in the guidebook. No gear til the last five foot when you're past all difficulties.
