Multi pitch route that starts up an obvious corner at the right hand end of the crag. You exit left beneath the overhang onto a ledge, where you move left to an obvious crack. Belay here. Climb the crack slightly before traversing out right across the face to the ar�te where you continue to the top. From the top of the ar�te you can belay or its a short step across & up a shallow scope to the top.

As with Snap this is a lovely route with its closeness to the road making it handy for a quick climbing fix!
