Rockfax Description
Follow Hostile Witness out to the arete. Then climb it on its left side - bold - to the horizontal break traversed by Suspended Sentence. Pull up into a short groove and progress rightwards to the top via more hard climbing on rounded breaks. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Takes the 'downright murderous' arete above the hand traverse of Hostile Witness. According to the SDD guide the LH side of the arete is followed, to the capping roof where you "pull up R into a hanging groove, from which thin moves lead up RWs to a poor break & a rounded finish".

βeta: Sweet route! Found the top section of the route pretty steady, all the gear was bomber just the runouts inbetween would make for some large but mostly safe whips. From eyeing it up, I dont think you would groundfall on the runout on the crux arete.
