Easy E2, requires trust. Also the unnamed problem/route (similar length to OS) on chipped holds, to the right of Baby Spice (V0).

Dave Warburton - Solo O/S - 14/Oct/09 with HuwGoodal

no mats or spotters for full tick. it felt fine. prob not worth e2 as only about 2 moves to it. best tick of the day though if i exclude 3 mantels.
Mattyk - Solo O/S - 26/Sep/09 with Jo

adi bryant - Solo - Apr/09

Easy (5b) slab moves above a not so great landing add 'spice' to this mini route. Despite the landing would still question the E2 tag.....With mats a V1 boulder problem. Interestingly baby spice (right side of arete) gets E5!!!!!
Fire Marshall - Solo O/S - 02/Aug/08
