22m. Climbs the grey shield in the upper half of the crag just R of Trench Warfare.
Start at a shallow groove 2 m R of Trench Warfare. Climb the R wall of the groove to a slabby area. Gain a ledge to the R of the overlap above then pass the next small overlap at its R end to gain good handholds at the base of the shield. Move up L onto the shield and climb its R edge by awkward moves between good edges. From the last good edge make hard moves up the centre of the shield to the finishing jugs.

Superb route, felt pretty sustained as lots of moves at full stretch. The head wall felt exposed with really nice moves, on a couple of crimps to jugs. Great compact rock.

Abbed, cleaned and brushed then shunted. It was pretty well clean and well chalked before this. Note: most of the chalk goes R into the groove from the jug at the bottom R of the shield itself. Originally we went up L from the jug. This gives better and more sustained climbing but is artificial. Take your pick.

Great fun, nice crux finish

Is described. For the short an alternative is to move left to the arete below the last bolt and ascend using the arete. This may reduce grade to 6a+

enjoyed this route but thought bit soft for 6b, only one move near top was hard.
