Borderline whether it deserves the "serious" tag, but the crux is quite tricky, with spaced pro. Then again, you've got plenty of clean air up there, and it's still a great route.
Start: Start as for The Bard.
24m (9) Climb the initial slab of Bard and the corner cracks then belay at the start of the R-leading ramp.
20m (16) Pull up L from the ramp then traverse L above the bulge for 6m, then up the face a few metres L of the arete. Belay on the same ledge as The Bard's 2nd belay.
27m (17) Up the line on the R side of the main arete for 8m to a small roof. Now launch up left via steep exciting climbing to gain the next line, which gradually eases. Belay under the obvious roof.
12m (16) Step a bit R to get through the roofs without too much difficulty, to finish on the Bard Terrace.
First Ascent: John Moore, Chris Dewhirst, 24 Dec 1967
