At the far left end of the crag, Abseil from the cleaned thread 10m back from the cliff top to a superb stance just above the high water mark. Climb the right trending fist jamming crack until forced to make a very committing step up left. (Elvis may enter the building) Continue direct to the summit up several small edges and a worrying layback.

Start at the same stance as Island life but immediately climb out to the left and follow the parallel cracks to the top.
