Rockfax Description
A good introduction to grit though the initial slab is unprotected. Climb the left-hand edge of the slab to its crest then traverse right to the continuation beyond the cleft. Some consideration for protecting nervous seconds is sensible. © Rockfax

βeta: For the finish shown in the book, I would say more like Diff... must try the correct route next time.
