Direct finish to slab climb. Climb the slab to the top of the groove, but instead of stepping right to the corner, finish direct up the wall.

This is both easier and better protected than both the neigbouring severes, and certainly easier than Via Media

Wanted this to be Emmas lead, but after watching me lead first to place gear for her and set up a belay from the top she copped out and seconded - which is fair enough as her hardest lead to date is a HD.

Despite what the new F&R guide shows, this is not really an independent route, just an alternative finish to neighbouring routes.
