Description 

From the CRAG-VT guide: Mixed route. Start at bottom of awesome left-running
offwidth crack. Trad climb diagonal crack up left to a stance. Next climb arête placing
pro and clipping 3 bolts until reaching top ledge. Stay on far left on arête; face climbing
off right of the arête is easier. 2-bolt anchors. PG protection. Long and sustained with
heady crux.

Location 

Left most route, and the first route you approach. The off width crack will be obvious.

Protection 

3 bolts, gear for an off width crack.

Couldn't figure out the arete moves, I felt like the best/most direct line was up the slab right of the arete, but this meant that fall would have been kinda pendulum-y from the bolts. Dirty but definitely worth doing!

Agreed - I was on top rope so the fall was not an issue for me, but it seemed more natural to take the face.
