Start as per Head Over Heals/Astropoodle, then climb up to the right side of the roof (poor pro and scary until you clip the bolt just above the roof).

Now you can relax and enjoy some great face moves on the slightly overhanging face (nice rock) up to the Spacewalk handcrack to finish.

A big chunk of the down-facing flake that you use just after the initial ceiling broke off. The chunk is currently sitting at the base of the route covered in chalk. Not sure if this changes the difficulty, but be forewarned...

My guess is that the difficulty has been significantly increased, as I recall the crux was reaching up to that down-pointing flake!
