Climb the right hand side of the slab to the left of the corner (Lion), starting from the bottom of the easy, diagonal descent. The top part is very bold without microwires. Top out could benefit from a little pruning.

Others have noted top part of climb is bold, I found gear placement for a small cam and number 5 nut far out left 4/5 of the way up (quite a stretch). Might be of use. Top out holds are dirty

Really fun. Yeah the tops a bit run out but the holds are good, and the climbings easy. Also theres a number 2 (ish?) cam in a vertical slot to the left.

The top section is in no way `bold'; I found a no. 1 nut placement halfway up the upper slab and a decent cam just below the top. There is the odd loose block here and there.
