A varied & interesting route. Excellent for aspiring new leaders. Easily protectable with fairly straight forward route-finding; but if in doubt follow the worn patches. At the top of the first pitch, go right & clamber over the boulder. Towards the end of the route, a broad knobbly slab leads to a headwall. Continue up the wall, or more commonly, traverse right, below the foot of the wall to a large square block which marks the top of an obvious chimney. This provides an enjoyable abseil or interesting scramble descent.
