30m. Just right of Robsí Slab is is a thin vegetated disjointed slab. Mostly Severe climbing, with a harder but well protected crux. Start 2m right of a large vertical slit/cave. Climb past a sapling to an overlap. Surmount this (crux) and continue up the slab until it is possible to swing up and left onto another slab. Follow this to the top taking care with the unpleasant finish.

Has this route suffered from recent rockfall? The moves through the initial roof felt very worrying for the grade as there is loose rock that I would not trust to pull on. I decided to traverse left a meter and gain the overlap there. This way was still very sketchy and nearly resulted in a fall after one of my hand holds spontaneously cracked off. The route was actually OK after the start.

We thought VS 4b, crux possibly 4c for the short.

crux at the overhang probably harder as the rock was slimey wet so distinct lack of choice for feet. Was forced to to a deadpoint and hope I was going to a good hold. Above that, needed extreme care due to the large amount of loose rock. The top part of the climb is extremely fragile indeed - as were my nerves as I topped out!
