βeta: So I would describe it as follows: The obvious chimney pointing to the right (in)side of the arch. Basically the (through) route follows this chimney with the slight exception of these incredible detours through the church (crypt). Enter the chimney, after a few awkward moves (approx 20m above the start) a corridor opens quite narrowly on the left. Follow this in a spiralling way to find yourself on a platform about half way up the chimney. Now follow the original chimney again into the depth (choke stones above) to climb/wiggle and crawl higher through a tiny opening. The space opens up again, this time deeper in the chimney and there is a bigger choke stone directly above. Now move out the chimney on ledges and good holds (also on the choke stone) to gain the right edge of the arch and through it to a comfortable ledge on the face behind it. Intersection with Flake route. Across the arch up another chimney and increasingly easier to the top.
