Benecol* VS
[Marked routes of Benecol, High Fibre, and Low Cholesterol., 4 kb]20m. Starts 2 metres left of High Fibre at an obvious small quartz block trapped at the base of the 2.5m high large block leaning against the main face. An excellent pitch, with thought provoking moves and good protection.
Step up right and climb the block, move left into the bottom of a short square corner. Follow this moving first right, then back left into the crack line on the left edge of the buttress.

Found the hard moves well hard.

Surprised at eldre070's comment as I found the crux move - getting out of the dank green corner onto the face - quite demanding. Thought it was 5a, but with good gear at waist height still VS. Agree with others that the route is rather poor, lacking independence from High Fibre, too.

Poor first 8m before stepping onto cleaner face. No star imo. High Fibre is lots better. Couldn't see a 4c move on it.

Not bad, but High Fibre is better. Gets a bit too close to that route higher up.
