βeta: Take the headwall direct following the bolts, its about a grade easier if you go off to the trad route on the right, then swing back.

βeta: Harder, better and on route without the big chalky sidepulls to the right.

βeta: solo up loose rock past mud and goat poo to reach manky thread. levitate up weird crimpy section on increasingly poor holds. stand on ledge for a while praying that you do it this time and never need to come here again. use the big chalky sidepull jugs out right for the top crux. if you eliminate these and climb the line of the bolts direct, give yourself 7c imho.
