14m. Now fully bolted. With a high first bolt, the safest way to enter the shallow corner is from the left. Clime the corner easily to a ledge below a rounded arete of the headwall. Make a really hard move to get established on the headwall, then finish more easily on sharp pockets

Great climbing on the upper wall. I'd checked it out on the way down from the adjacent route.

One very bouldery hard move. Good fun but hardly the brilliant route the southwest climbs selected guide would make you think it is with that lovely photo. :)

1 pretty tough move on small crimps, but nice after that

Will be back to lead this. Looks like a foot hold out left has come off and so have to use a smear instead at the crux. Great moves above the crux. The sun come out I was climbing up to the break - nice. Quickly through the crux (you don't want to hang around) and then some good moves onto the rock above .. lovely.
