Take the easiest line up the wall to the left of Pillar Variant, finishing to the right of the overhang. Protection mostly dodgy on flexing flakes, but lovely climbing.

The flakes sound very hollow and flex a ton, i went straight up (out and over) the block/ overhang, broke loose and hung for a bit because it feels so class, Lou didn't take a photo... (and lets be honest, that's what its all about), big jugs on the block, so pretty easy to do this way

Amazing, not as bold as everyone think, though some tricky enough moves.

No way the direct start is 4c, it's easier. Finishing via the roof is more like 4c though, and highly recommended!

Difficulty getting over the top! Rope, rock and belayer in the way. Got foot out to overhang and used it to push me up over the edge and rope.
