The original route on 'The Central Slabs', a diagonal ascent from left to right. Start 30 metres left of 'Further Out' at a short crack below a ledge.

  1. 35 metres - Ascend the short crack to a bushy ledge. Climb the steep wall above and a crack trending right, then traverse left onto a grey, flaky area. Delicately up to a bolt, then up the shallow crack to a ledge.

  2. 35 metres - Traverse 20 metres right along a ledge system until it peters out, continue around a bulge and follow more ledges to beneath a vertical flake formed crack.

  3. 42 metres - Up the crack for 6 metres, then traverse right and then trend left to a ledge and very dubious bolt. Up over ledges, a corner and slab to a ledge and bush.

  4. 24 metres - Climb the crack, trending left for about six metres, then traverse left for about 12 metres and up into a V-groove to belay.

  5. 18 metres - Climb the corner and crack above to the left side of the overhanging yellow rock, across the gap and onto a large ledge.

  6. 25 metres - Climb up right for five metres onto a flaky ledge, then up left to another. Continue over a short wall to the top.
