Description 

Up the V and pull the roof. Then head left toward crack. Up that and right-ward to the top.

Location 

At the obvious V roughly in center of main Enclosure base platform.
The Enclosure base platform can be reached by first going to the Sunny Picnics area, then climbing the Access Scramble route.

Protection 

Top-Roping: Can construct a trad anchor at top of cliff. To reach the top starting from the platform at the base of the Enclosure, scramble over left (west) to the arete which forms the east edge of the upper Tower Wall, and perform a trad lead of the Upper Manticore Arete route.

Or easier but longer, starting from the base of the Tower Wall, walk horizontally west (left) past Three Bears and Daves Wall. Turn full Right and follow trail up rocky slope. Trail gets gentle, soon bear right off trail and go to gentle high point above Tower Wall. Continue east beyond the summit to top of Enclosure crag.

Protection for trad Leading is unknown and likely inadequate.

As of November 2015, the bottom of this route is blocked by an impenetrable mass of nasty thorns / prickers.
So I haven't tried it yet.
