10m. The face to the right of the chimney (Galadriel's Gash) gives some good climbing protected by small wires and with only a little suspect rock near the start. Bridge/layback up the short corner on the right, then swing left to gain a foot ledge. Move up the small slab to gain holds high on the right. Rock up leftwards onto an obvious foothold on the steeper headwall, stretching left to gain a hidden finger slot. Finish straight up to block/thread belays. Alternatively climb the groove and crack on the right to finish (easier, probably HVS 5a but still good). Descend by scrambling right and dropping down an easy gully.

Marks story about the initial discussion of the route name still cracks me up.

a very pleasent route which felt more HVS 5a* to me even sticking to the middle of the face which feels natural with the good side pull out left. Good but mildly fiddly small protection. Worth a star.

Didn't see how to do the E1 headwall (couple of bomber wires below and on it, but no holds), so went out slightly right to do what is probably the HVS version. Quite nice I thought. --- Reading the description now, I started from the left instead of from the right at the bottom of the climb. And the description given for the headwall would have been useful to have. Next time...

I rather enjoyed it for the fun moves on the head wall.

Some nice technical moves on the diminutive "headwall"
