14m. On the far left side of the terrace above Om Puri is a small, isolated slice of slab with its foot at a slightly higher level than the main terrace. Approach by abseil, or climb Om Puri pitch 1 (or any of the pitches to its right) and go left along the terrace. Climb the centre of the narrow slab (good small wire at half-height). This, the left-hand of the two offerings on the narrow slab, is a neat little microroute, the difficulties being confined to the lower half. The E1 grade assumes use of a good small wire placement at about half-height. Balance up the centre of the slab to reach a jug. Rock up onto this and finish straight up.

Nice clean slab, bold little route, good moves. I'd say low in 5b, but potentially serious consequences if you do come off - the landing zone is a loose stack of angular boulders.

Pretty bold route - no obvious runner before the tree

Good challenging climbing with solid gear on trees if you divert left and right slightly.

E1 seems right, perhaps high in the grade. Needs a Wallnut/Rock 1 or a large micro for a crucial placement.
