Route has the same start as Angst, but continues straight up the wall. About five bolts of easier climbing leads to the first tough section at an obvious bulge. Negotiate a few moves on very small crimps (12a/b), and the climbing above eases again. Clip the final bolt and work through the strenuous undercling crux that guards the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Gollum ascent

Intimidating crux before the anchors, committing throw off small holds. It seems improbable, but it does go. This route is actually pretty good.
