A very good route. Start just left of the cave.
1) 5b. Boulder to a ledge at 3m and move up the technical wall (peg). Continue through the narrowing groove to a stance on a prow.
2) 5a. Climb up to a steep crack and then traverse wildly rightwards around the arete.

Nice and varied route - got a bit of everything. The final swing round the nose is fantastic, though committing to it can be a problem...

This was HVS in the Nick White CC guide. E1 seems fair now the peg has gone and it's gained some polish. It's a fine route, and easy to climb as one pitch provided you extend the runners protecting the traverse.
