10m. The slab and arete using some naughty holds. © ROCKFAX
Start in the centre of the wall, left of Grit Corner. Make thin moves up till it is possible to move left to the second ledge. Small wires. Step back right onto the wall and climb straight up to the cave, good cam. Then to top. It is possible to climb straight up the wall with no gear till the cave and is more like bold 5c.

good small wires at the ledge. after cross checking guides decided the route went as described by crofty below. more good gear at the cave, and would be a good small cam in the slot above - unfortunately I had already used this cam as a back up piece of gear in the cave so had to do without

would be a very unprotected lead, nice climbing without, assume the grade is for the unprotectedness of the route.
