25m. A varied route, with a bold, delicate start followed by a well protected and technical crack. Start to the right of the pinacle and follow a rising diagonal ramp towards the obvious cracks on the left edge of the buttress. Ascend the cracks, with difficulty, until the huge ledge is gained three quarters of the way up the crag. Carefully traverse the entire ledge and finish up the easier crack on the right side of the buttress. Take plenty of finger size cams.

***TAKE CARE WITH THE ROCK AT THE FINISHING CRACK - with a little persuasion a large amount could be removed***

Henward attempted to onsight, placing gear up to his high point a bit below the crux, and was lowered off in the end. I tied on the end of the rope, then flashed the crux, but pumped out above and took a fall. After that, I climbed cleanly to the top. I was pleased to make an E5 6b with just one fall!

One yo-yo from ledge at bottom of crack. Gets a bit close to the gully on the left for 3 stars. Otherwise excellent.

Checked out some of the gear on the bold lower section before making the decision to go for the lead. Climbed clean with no practise.
