28m. Takes the subsidiary slab right of Rob's slab. Still some loose rock on the top groove, but with traffic should become a good, well protected route. Start at the bottom of the slab, down to the right of the large slumped blocks (from which Volume Eleven starts). Climb the slab, trending slightly right, bypass the roof, and gain a groove. Climb this for 3 metres; then use an obvious jug to swing back left onto the top slab. Finish up this.

Did the correct route this time with some direction from Riddle. Although harder than the first time I did it (wrong route) actually felt cleaner.

May have strayed a little too far to the right at the start and definitely got onto the upper slab further up than the 4 metres from the corner which I think is easier than HS. Nice exposure at the top.

First trad lead!! Great fun. Bit loose at the end of the first slab before going left onto the upper slab. Second slab much easier than the beginning and no loose rock.

Difficulties are low down where the protection is rather marginal, worth the grade for the first half. The step round onto the upper slab felt more committing than it was.

We now agree with HS 4b, also with right-trending line on lower slab (rather than up then across).
bpmclimb - 2nd rpt - 13/Aug/11 with Helen S

possibly went further right on the initial slab than intended, in order to avoid a large wet streak and some nasty mud at the overlap. Solid HS this way.

Good route, reasonably solid. VS 4b seems about right; top end of the 4b bit, perhaps. Measured at 28m.
