Where the normal route diverges left, continue straight up via the thin crack.

Started up Forbidden Colours with the idea of having a look at this finish - actually really worthwhile! There was a bit of hanging around placing gear, but the actual crux sequence was pretty cool - fingerlocks and sidepulls, then high feet. Soft E1 5c.

Nice route. Bottom feels hard for HVS and top felt more like an E2 to me....maybe I was missing something.

More like 5c if you continue direct on crimps, bit too easy to escape right or left, good though...
