Stand start on knobs and jugs at the left hand side of the North Face of the Loaf. Move to the right and up on jugs and occasional crimps to top out. Feet are good. Downclimb is obvious, on climber's left.
This problem lies on the North face of the Loaf. Croft and Lewis's book doesn't cover this side of the Loaf (only the west side, in picture B3 on p. 165), but indicates on page 164 that there may be a V1 on this face. I believe the V1 is the well-chalked problem on the arrete to the right, not this problem, which felt much easier, roughly V0-.
Pad, spotter. Spotter should make sure to move pad, and keep it as anchored as possible, as the ground slopes down to the right. A fall could conceivably start the climber pad-surfing into a bush.
