Rockfax Description
This follows the shallow scoop in the slab left of Silica, gained by a short wide crack - delicate and poorly protected. A variation start up the arete of block in front of the route is also possible at about the same grade. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the bottom wall of Silica until a step left onto the small pinnacle standing in front of the face can be made. Move up to the base of the right-crack in Sand Gully, step out right to a shallow corner and climb directly to the top; poorly protected

You can get one piece of gear just below half way...only worth taking the ropes for your second, or else you may as well solo it!

Green and gritty, needs more traffic, but it won't get much.

Wasn't sure of the line so eliminated the left wall and crack from the floor, felt a bit stiff this way but still HVS.

The little scoop is good 5a. We added a start up the arete of the block (5a).
