Rockfax Description
A steep pitch that finishes up a well protected slim corner. Start on the upper ledge at the base of the descent down-climb/abseil. Move up right on to the stepped arete and climb this to below a left-facing, well-defined slim corner crack. Climb this with difficulty - well protected - to the top and stake belays well up the slope to the left. © Rockfax

Nice route, worth it's star, but VDiff?! hmmmmm... as Luca so wonderfully put it "You should be able to fall over on a VDiff" and you certainly can't on this one!

I probably started a bit too far right, nice solid rough rock. The crack wasn't quite as friendly for passive gear as it looked. Nice wee route but hard in the grade
