Start just to the left of the cave and climb, passing perched flakes with care, to below the overhang. Move right past the arete and finish up the juggy face a little further to the right. © Rockfax

βeta: Good range of styles on this one, felt very exposed on the traverse and up the final wall.

βeta: Technical crux at the start. Pyschological crux making the move around the corner. Once traversing didn't want to waste time putting in gear - move right and to the top.

βeta: The technical crux is getting off the ground. But yes, the traverse is quite exposed.
