55m, 2 pitches. Two superbly very varied pitches. HVS 4c. 1st pitch-slabby and fairly bold lead with some suspect protection. HVS 5a. 2nd pitch-wonderful, steep, well protected jamming crack.

Led p2, found it hard. Moss for feet and pinches for hands...maybe I was meant to jam.

The guide says contrasting pitches, and it isn't wrong. 1st pitch is vegetated with a lot of hollow flakes and not much gear. Second pitch is nice!
