38m. Starting from the cave entrance just right of Balch's Slide, move up and cross loose ground to reach the slab; then take a direct line to the top. Spaced protection.

Steve led the route, me and Alice followed up on separate ropes, removing respective gear. I'm not entirely sure of the ascent style, as it's only a partial second!?!

Much easier climbing than the direct route of Balch's Slide which is supposed to be the same grade. Only did it on top rope as last climb of the evening and the rope was there after the ab down from Balch. Would be okay lead but there weren't a lot of places to put gear...

Felt a bit more like a solo until I got a bit of shoddy gear in. Climbing over the black Quartz is of interest.
