22m, 2 pitches. 1. 4c Climb to corner via flake. Commit to move (crux) around corner, mantle onto short slab and belay at top. 2. 4b Down climb from belay and tackle wall on left. 5a Alternative finish up centre of wall

Fun route. Better if you look around/down for small footholds and remain in balance, rather than hanging on to the crack and flakes.

Didn't really bother with second pitch though partner went up the HVD and I effectivey toproped the harder part of the slab - lacking a guidebook we weren't sure it was an HVS runout (think it would have been OK if airy)
