Start:Start 1.5 metres right of Heretic.
Description:A bit contrived at the start but still a good route. Diane Super Direct (19) by Paul Badenoch appears to be largely a repeat of pitch 3 of this climb but starting a bit more to the left. Description is reproduced in pitch 3. Repeat ascents may clear up whether there are 1 or 2 lines here.
Pitch 1:41m 22 (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: 22)
Easy corner until half=way to roof then step right and climb bold arete to roof. Break through overhang using crack just left of smooth groove, barely keepng out of Heretic. Traverse right on lip of overhang then up and left up wall to shallow corner just right of Heretic pitch two. Shallow corner and rib above. Move right around arete and up thin crack to ledge (original second belay of Diane).
Pitch 2:20m - (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: -)
Move right and up Diane for 3 metres. Step right to arete and go up into the next corner right of Diane and up this to stance on left.
Pitch 3:35m - (consensus from 0 ascents; FA grade: -)
Up line above, with odd formation at 3 metres. Step left and up face and steep wall into hanging corner. Up corner to roof. Exit right. (Diane Super Direct 35 19 From second belay of Diane, swing around overhang and head for bottomless corner directly above the belay. Up Corner to belay. Easier ground to top.
