Description 

Climb Fen Gliddich to setup a toprope anchor. Make sure you have 2 quickdraws to place in the directional bolts as you lower down from the anchor (about 10 and 15 feet down and to the right).

This climb shares the start with "Tea Bag." Ascend the left side of the black pillar and continue up and slightly left. Try to follow the darker red colored rock as it seems to be higher quality than the lighter shade. Climb up to steeper terrain near the two directional bolts. The crux was a nice left leaning lieback to get the good holds around the first bolt.

Location 

Right wall (East) between Fen Gliddich and Tea Bag

Protection 

2-ring Fixe anchor and 2 bolts for directionals

This is a TR variation you can do off the Fen Gliddich anchor. Bring two runners and use a sliding-X configuration on the Fen anchor to equalize it since the directional bolts are far to the right. Rates about 10b/c? and is another route to do if you are seeking shade in the Tea Room on a hot day. Stick to the darker colored and reddish rock. and watch out for loose stuff since this hasn't seen much traffic.
