    The centre of the wall left of the arête.

    Climb the wall on the right to the break, then finish up the arête above.

    A good route, but there is no pro, and the landing is poor. The hanging arête is climbed on its right-hand side to a small ledge, then easier moves lead to the top.

    Go up the blocky corner, traverse left then up the prow to finish.
