45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A 'one-move-wonder' route up the narrow side slab. Start from a ledge 10m up on the arete.
1) 4c, 30m. Climb the right-hand side of the slab to a break. Step up left and follow the centre of the slab to the top overlap. Pull through this by a crack in its centre and belay on the ledge above.
2) 4a, 5m. Finish up the short wall at the back of the ledge. © Rockfax

Wasn't so keen on this. Not too well protected on somewhat fractured rock low down. Good, well-protected crux at the overlap but this is hard 5a (maybe more) if done direct at the cracks as described (easier on L as Charles discovered). The crack in the slab above the overlap is now full of vegetation. It may be easier if this hides a good hold. If there is one, I didn't find it.

Avoided impossible hoik over the overlap by short traverse to the left ...

Rob Davies 13/Aug 2nd dog

Hard move at overlap - 5b? Original description mentions pulling on vegetation, which has gone. Charles dodged L.

Couldn't get over the break. Loose rock at the belay, not an enjoyable route.
