The left arching line through the overhangs is a fine route featuring strenous climbing and good protection.
1) 5c, 25m. Take the short wall into the main flake line. Climb this to the overhangs and traverse left, peg, and then pull into a groove with difficulty. Move up and then out right on to an arete, peg, and climb this and a wall to a stance.
2) 5a, 12m. The overhang above the satnce to easier ground.

Not the best rock but a good route none the less.

E3 5c. good climbing in the first pitch,pulled a toaster size block off on the layback part just before the roof, pretty sure there is no more loose rock on the first pitch now. second pitch is loose and could be avoided if a lower off was installed.
