The name of this route was in keeping with the other Route names and chosen because it was 'watt' was 'left over' just 'over left' of the routes done 2 decades ago by Sharp & Fitch.
On the left-most side of the left hand section of Physical crag there is a moderate slabby face that ascends on some intermittent cracks to left-facing corner. The crux of the route comes near the upper third of its length, in a short section with a quality finger crack with great locks, just to the left of the dirty seam in the corner itself.
Climb this system to the top, being careful not to drop rocks on your second. This is the only moderate line and probably the best warm-up on the cliff.
This route has quite possibly been climbed before, as it is moderate and somewhat obvious. Still, no mention or memory of it in Rossiter's book or from Sharp indicates prior passage. Its clandestine location and somewhat un-cleaned state left possible the potential that this was an unclimbed moderate.
A standard light rack with finger-sized pro for the crux section.
