25m, 2 pitches. Despite appearances this route has good small holds and can be reasonably well protected. Start at the little corner at the left side of Minor Slab.
1. (4b) 15m. Climb the corner for 1m and then straight up the slab right of a dirty crack line on small sharp holds to ledge on a blunt arĂȘte at half height. Step left towards a niche and finish up right leaning cracks.
2. (4a) 10m. Above the terrace lies a slab in the form of an inverted triangle. Climb direct on to the toe of the slab and climb to the top on good holds.

Not sure which Minor route i climbed but must have been off route for 2nd pitch as made a HVS 5a on a dodgy cam from slight overhang out onto the leftside arete. Maybe it was VS 4c but wished i'd made a better placement first.

Followed a direct eliminate line direct up the blunt nose, ignoring cracks to L and R, at about 5b. Excellent climbing but blinkered and somewhat artificial.

Assumed first ascent. It was later discovered that this line was probably discovered by Wharton and Stangle in 1933.
