12m. A fun little route, now downgraded. Start below and slightly left of a small tree and climb to it passing two overlaps: passing the first is the 5b crux, the rest of the climbing is considerably easier. Abseil off.

One move route which is well protected. First overlap provides bomber gears. The move is technical rather than strenuous (5c?) and the key is to find tiny foothold. It stopped me for a while. Well done to Howard for clean lead.

Not exactly the best conditions (very cold and the step by the first gear was running with water) but had a bash anyway. 1 Fall from the crux overlap then lowered back down and tried again, got it clean second go. May have been the conditions but this felt very scary and VERY hard.
