40m, 2 pitches. This route with its variation finish is in the recessed area between the upper parts of Cliff at Christmas and Alfresco. Start just left of the toe of the crag left of Route 2. 1 10m (4b). Climb the crack in the wall to join Route 2 at the belay ledge. 2 30m (4c). Climb the poorly protected wall just left of pitch 2 of Route 2, trend leftwards and then straight up to saplings and a block runner and some welcome gear at about 10 metres. Go left for about 3 metres into the recess. Make a high step onto ledges on the left. Climb back right via an undercut crack into the groove leading to the top. Climb the groove first by holds on the left wall and then by the slab on the right.

Single Pitch. Nice route but the whole top corner section of rock appears detached from the buttress. Wouldn't like to be around when that lot comes down!
