50m, 2 pitches. Very exciting slab climbing that could give HVS leaders nightmares and cold sweats, starting on a comfy "spectators ridge" on the frontal slab. P1 4c - Excellent teetering above the void with reasonable climbing and instant exposure leads to the easier rib and belay in the break. P2 5a - Place all your cams in the sharp flake and use it to pull on to the slab. Smear and balance up this - crux, serious fall potential - to a good hold and much easier climbing up and onto the next slab to finish.

topsyturvy 11 May 2nd Scary, and not just because of the 4 ticks feasting on my arm. Probably a good idea to put a tick removal tool in your pack, and let your mate lead the top pitch. Better still, let him string both 1 and 2 together.
