Another hidden gem with excellent steep slab climbing. The line in the CC guide is wrong but the route is fairly obvious. Start up the golden face just left of Visions and make a brave E3 5b solo to the overlap at 9m above and a good rest. Fill this with various micro-gear (quite reasonable if you're careful) and make very technical moves to gain the "just out of reach" thin crack. Race up this on better holds until a final stiff layback leads to easier ground. Belay and finish at your leisure.

Thin, couldn't see any decent gear. A lead for a young man with no dependants!

Bold climbing (for leader) leads to harder climbing above! Had to rest a couple of times and thought it a hard 5c.
