32m. On Black Slab. Traverse west across the hillside at the third winding house to access the slab just beyond a rib.

A good long pitch up the L side of the black slab with very pleasant delicate climbing. Done with a 70 m rope but might just be possible with a 60 on the stretch or maybe a bit of down climbing?
Start to the right of the grassy corner that bounds the slab on its L. Climb up then L into a shallow R-facing groove. Exit this to good footholds on the R then pull back L through bulges to pass a grass patch on its L. Pass the next grass on its R then go delicately over a bulge, up a slab then R to easier ground. Step L to the lower off. 9 BR, 2 ring-bolt lower off.
