19m (15): Climb an overhanging crack with an awkward take-off. At the top, traverse left onto a bushy ledge.
28m (16): Climb up on the corner and traverse across the face to the right past the top of pitch 4, and then up and to the right to a point above the corner of the large overhang, where there is a small resting place.
