Good jamming and bridging exercise but hard to locate, probably because of inaccurate access descriptions in all the existing guides.

Start: Despite many guidebooks saying so this route is NOT accessed from the Giant's Staircase. When heading along the track towards the Staircase from the Northern/Rhand end of the cliff there is a little dip about 160m before the top of the Staircase where the track nears the cliff. Walk to the cliff edge and there is a short steep slightly vegetated gully leading to a ledge about 10m below. Head down to ledge turn R [facing cliff] and go about 5m to get up onto some blocks around the arête. A clean open book corner is directly above. BD 4 useful.
