19m. An agreeable natural line with steady protection and thoughtful non-strenuous climbing.
Start up the left side of the rib (small wire) to reach a ledge and a welcoming vertical nut slot ('hexs' useful). (all as for Night of the Comic Dead). Follow the ramp line diagonally rightwards past two new peg runners (with optional good protection variously down on the right) to reach a small complex overlap. Pull over rightwards into the scoop above, peg, and finish delicately rightwards to a shared double ring abseil station.

Originally E1 5a. Re-cleaned and two extra pegs added in 2012.

Other than undercutting on a scary looking death block really quite nice

Quite nice with good gear. One of the pegs can't be clipped directly, as the biner would go over an edge, fiddled a nut through instead following brilliant advice from James. Not even sure if this is HVS, might just be upper end VS 4c.

Easier HVS - the rusty pegs are in fact new ones...

Damp and greasey after a day of rain but a decent gap-filling excursion. Ollie did the final moves to the rusty belay station in the dark.
