Rockfax Description
The blunter of the twin buttresses has a tricky move before the angle drops back. Escape off left or finish up Wedge Rib. © Rockfax

Be aware that there the block just after the first vertical crack and at the start of the blank slabby face is showing signs of movement. Especially if used as a side pull according to my second. (No need to use as a side pull by the way)

Not 5a in anyone's books. Above the initial block you'd be hard pushed to call it climbing...

Felt much easier than 5a, although the gear for the crux is behind a slightly worrying sounding block. VS 4b?

The only hard bits were at the bottom and at the top, but the middle is boring - you could basically scramble up. Like climbing 2 very short routs
