38m, 2 pitches. More pocket-pulling though fiercer than most hereabouts. Despite that, the route is quite low in the grade. Don't forget the threads. Climb the steep wall to the left of the shallow scoop, and directly above the stance, crossing a small bulge to join the last couple of moves of Central Wall. © ROCKFAX
