The Pen is Mightier than the Sword** S 4a
45m. Start up the face of a small pinnacle at the right end of the crag. Climb the poorly-protected slabs and ledges and a blocky arête, whence a traverse left leads to a further bold slab to finish

The FRCC website calls this the best Severe in the valley. It isn't! Seems to have been virtually created, so extensive (presumably) was the removal of vegetation and loose rock. Might improve with time and traffic. Not a bad line, but not very memorable, despite being poorly protected (S 3c?)
