20m. Follow the rib to the right of the crack of Acoustic, then straight up the slab for an interesting and more thuggish finish

Really enjoyable climb. Quite hard for the grade but interesting and pumpy climbing.

The current guidebook (2007) description is incorrect. The hanging corner at the start is way harder than VS and very contrived. The original start (as in the 1997 guide) is the same as Acoustic, though we climbed the wall and rib just to its right.

Ran out of steam and enthusiasm right at the top crux. A hot day!

Scary move round the corner near the beginning, possibly better if the hold hadn't been entirely filled with soil until I excavated it. Slab near the top has some interesting moves on it.

A good route, spoilt slightly by the the trees at the top of the route. A quite technical move on the slab in the centre of the climb. Enjoyable.
