Rockfax Description
Climb The Corner then step right and climb the slab rightwards to a jug. Pull up to the overhang, traverse right and finish up the short face of the rocking block. A finish on the left is harder. © Rockfax

Going right from the niche was much easier than expected but finishing direct over the rocking block past the 2 pockets is not possible at 5b so I traversed right just around the arete to finish which I think is in keeping with the grade of the rest of the route
