14m. The leaning corner is pleasant if somewhat rattly and is good practice for bigger, looser things. © Rockfax

I climbed it first with a shunt as the guide warned of loose rock but it seemed pretty solid.

Bit of a run out at start then two pieces of gear and another run out to top. Felt a lot easier than Crews Route at same grade. (Seconded this in Oct 2012 hence "clean with beta.")

Nice. Some good moves between decent rests. A bit chossy in the very corner, but nothing to detract too much. Thought the last move was hardest, but that may be because the ledges felt sandy and slippy. Definitely worth at least a star.
