3 pitches. Pitch 1 (4c). Start right of Godiva Groove below a buttress with a crack/shallow groove running up it. Climb the groove pleasantly left then right of the crack. Continue up a laid-back arete to a stance at the foot of a blunt rib, below a precarious-looking flake a few metres left of the corner of Hiatus Pitch 2.
Pitch 2 (5a). Climb up by the flake and step right on to a short slab. Climb the right edge of the bulge above the slab with increasing difficulty until the angle eases and continue to belay on a small stance (as for end of pitch 2 Hiatus) some way below the impressive overhangs.
Pitch 3 (5b). Climb the left edge of the slab above and follow the line of Hiatus, traversing left across the overhung and undercut slab to reach the foot of a square-cut corner. Climb the corner until a very cramped "resting place" is reached below the roof. Round to the right is to be found a rattly fang which is reached with difficulty and used to traverse the steep holdless wall (crux) to good holds and the sanctuary of a corner. After equanimity is regained, the corner leads uneventfully to the top.

DavidR 23 Jun, 2018 AltLd dnf Awful route. Horrible vegetation-bashing to get to the base, then a grubby first pitch. Second pitch is described as looking for a 'clean' wall (or something like that). Nothing clean nearby so ended up starting up too far right, so off-route. Ended up giving up and traversing onto a VS to escape, and then up some horrible unclimbed terrain. Not a pleasant experience.
