Follow this to a ledge and belay.2) 4c, 10m. Pull up leftwards over an overhang to a crack and take this until a stance on the right can be reached.3) 5a, 12m. Traverse left below an overhang to a peg and make hard moves to get established on the headwall. Finish up the wall in a superb position. © Rockfax
