48m, 2 pitches. 1) 23m, 4a. Follow the obvious crack in the left-hand side of the slab to a small tree. Traverse a ledge rightwards and belay to trees.
2) 25m, 4a. Climb the left-slanting crack in the upper slab to a tree; then finish straight up. Single (but good) stake belay.

βeta: Topping out by following rightward-trending diagonal crack near very end looks to be less hassle than following straight up to vertical shothole.

βeta: Top of route really loose, few watermelon sized rocks pulled away, better to top out to the right with better footing and holds.

βeta: 4a section on the 2nd pitch is right at the top. Rather muddy top out now. Great care needed
