Up the corner from the natural belay bench. Beautiful, sustained, airy climbing with mostly good gear - keep an eye out for loose rocks and moss in cracks. Follow the crack to the first belay ledge, 5m below the split roof. Head through the roof and bulge above to an easier finish.

Sling rap off - bring 2m of tat in case you don't trust the existing stuff.
