Nathen working the Beach Problem #3

Description 

Sit start with hands on two good incut holds. Make a move out to the lip and hand traverse the lip rightwards until a long move gets a good slot hold on the arete.

Heel hook, work the hands up the arete and rock over, and enjoy the change in scene. Make a couple of balancy moves up the arete until possible to lean right to a good edge which is used to move up to the top of the slab.

From here scuttle of right towards the gully.

The direct is a couple of grades easier. It starts on the same holds under the overhang, pulls and mantles the overhang and then up and over the slab direct.

Euan's right the Direct is considerably easier, but has fun moves.
