Climb up to the overhang, and traverse left on good but polished holds. Traverse up diagonally right, (old in situ pin), below a steep face on your left.

When possible move straight on up the wall using a crack in a steep groove. As you gain height up the groove the climbing becomes harder, until the crux move allows you to reach left into the finishing moves of The Groove.


Just left of center is a large overhang at the foot of the wall. This climb starts up the left side of the overhang.
