Ninja* VS 4b
[Ninja, Juniper Wall., 3 kb]30m. A soft touch VS. Start by climbing on to the projecting block near the foot of Hair Raiser and follow the sinuous crack above which leads to a broad alcove on the upper girdle (possible belay). Climb steeply on good holds through the bulge above via a crack/small corner and traverse right to find an easy finish above over more broken rock.

Ticklists: Gower S-HVS *+, Orange Spot Gower.
