55m, 2 pitches. Start at some rust-coloured rock above the big flat boulder. Climb up directly past a poor peg (bold) to a small groove, and continue into a small niche. Either head right to the big triangular niche of Inbred to belay, or even better, move left and slightly down to another niche then more or less directly up the wall to join the final section of Inbred, giving a sustained 45m pitch.

Update May 2019: The crucial peg is bent and suspicious.
