Rockfax Description
Outstanding face climbing, continuously interesting with the two hard sections linked by superb moves. Start just below the ledge of Original Route, below a short, capped groove up and right. Enter the groove (good low wire, peg) and climb it past two pegs to the top. Pull out right (wire) then back left to the rest on Flaky Wall. Follow this past its tricky bit and continue in a direct line up the pocketed wall to an exciting finish onto the ledge. © Rockfax

βeta: Oh and the 'jug' at the end of the runout is full with soil and grass extending the length of the tricky section.

βeta: The sideways nut placement mentioned is all but blown out now, however there are still good placements a few feet lower.
