Nice little slab and the juggy wall above if you go direct is also excellent.

Is at least VDiff, probably 4a. A direct exposed finish to the left of the heather lands you at the top of the butress and makes a worthwhile line.

howlingbaboon - 2nd O/S - 27/Sep/08 with Chris FitzHugh

Nice route, especially if you go straight up from the pillar rather than wandering off right. VDiff (as in Eastern Grit) is probably about right as the tricky start is unprotected.
