This is the direct start to Circe. Instead of starting on The Eye, begin on the 5.8 offwidth directly below Circe. This avoids the unappealing start to Circe and makes it into a nice climb. It was climbed by Mike Duncan and me on 28 March 2001, but we doubt that was a first ascent even though it's not listed in the guidebooks.
