Thin Line* HVS 5a
[Thin Line, Stone Wall, Rough Wall on Cubic Block, 2 kb]11m. From the boulders climb the face just right of the arete, low in the grade with a modern selection of cams. © ROCKFAX
From the jumble of boulders to the right of 'Cubic Corner', step onto the slab just right of the arete and climb it passing some useful horizontal breaks. Feels bold.
Tony and Robin Barley. 1963

Sloping hand holds and very little for your feet for the crux moves with gear below your feet, must be E1.
