38m. The obvious long clean strip above a quarryman's spike in the ground. Pad up the slab to a large tree belay. Sparse protection: possibly VS if you don't deviate from the direct line to place gear. NOTE: it's very easy to stray left onto The Socialist. Keep your blinkers on, climb direct, and keep an eye out for gear placements slightly right.

FA. J.Swift, A.Heath 1994.
