43m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The easiest line hereabouts and a logical continuation to Tennis Shoe which finishes 50m to the left. Start from the large ledges at the top of the Slab routes.
1) 4a, 12m. Traverse up and right into the deep gully. Three mini-mantels up the gully lead to a stance where it widens.
2) 4a, 28m. Traverse left along sloping ledges towards a jutting nose of rock. Climb past a V-groove to reach the faint groove to its left, just right of the nose. Follow this to the ledge. © Rockfax

I led P1, Catherine P2. Was joined by two other climbing parties on the belay ledge when Catherine had just set off. 6 climbers in total were freezing in the shade on the ledge on one of the hottest days in Ogwen... There is a small block and a flake on P2 which are dangerously loose and will take out climbers below if they blow - Catherine marked them with an 'X' in chalk as a warning but if someone can do that with fingertape that may save someone's life.

What a great route. 2nd climb of the day after tennis shoe, finished the climb in about 20-30mins.

1st pitch is a scramble. The traverse on the 2nd pitch seemed a little thin for hands but i might have been a little too high. Good fun though.

The 2 pitches could not contrast from one another more. 2nd pitch is out of this world; exposed and feels bold. Watch out for the loose flake just before the end of the traverse.
