[Susan cruising the route, 1 kb]30m. There is a pinnacle at the crag foot between Major Slab and Red Slab. Start by a contorted rowan tree just left of the vegetated gully which runs down the lower side of the pinnacle. Climb easily on large blocky holds, then slightly right, up and back left. From the horizontal break good crack climbing leads to a stepped arete on the right, which provides an exposed finish, mainly on its slabby right side.
