Shaking out before the commiting moves around the ...

Description 

Climb up a steep face until possible to move right up a delicate slab up to a roof.

Make a tricky move left around the arete and then commit to the powerful moves through the roof. Once established in the groove above the roof the climbing eases a little. At the top of the groove climb the big easy flakes to the anchors.

Location 

Left most route on the crag

Protection 

12 bolts, Rappel bolt and chain anchor.

I found this route fairly sustained and harder than the 11a next door which only really had one hard move.

Also watch out for your rope getting stuck in the crack on the lip of the overhang.

I did not enjoy this route at all and don't recommend it.
