A fine mini-adventure that requires competence from both leader and second. A chance to sample the ambience of Astral Stroll at a lesser level of difficulty. Start by abseiling 5m down a crack in a corner to a foothold stance next to an undercut slab on the right. Photo on page 186. 30m. Move onto the slab and make a difficult move up and out right onto the next slab, crux. Traverse right and then move under an overhang and across a bottomless corner to another slab. Move rightwards up the slab to the edge of the chasm. Climb the arete and left-slanting groove to the top. © ROCKFAX

Not too sure about the soft touch comments, didn't want to leave the first slab for a while but a great little adventure all the way!

In the rain, very slippery! Soft for the grade, and not 3 stars for me.

Hanging belay above rough sea was great. One 4c move and the rest easier but well-positioned climbing. It doesnt start and finish at the same place.

A very strange route which starts and finishes at the same place. Good climbing though.
