Stylish climbing requiring good technique and a set of strong fingers. Start just left of the cave below a ledge at 3m.</br>1) 5b, 15m. Boulder to a ledge at 3m and move up the technical wall above it. Continue through the narrowing groove to a stance on a prow.</br>2) 5a, 10m. Climb up the steep crack behind the belay and then traverse wildly rightwards around the arete to finish direct on good holds.

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.
