35m. This is the obvious crack in Rob's Slab. Climb the short rib just left of the overlaps to gain the crack; then follow the crack to where it trends slightly left (crux). Continue more easily as the crack goes straight up a short way, then bends to the right past a sapling high on the slab.

βeta: My first VS, and my 2nd trad climb in 3 years - didnt feel worried at all. The route feels very safe in that the gear is good. I did sling the little sapling, but mostly because I felt i should, its very unstable. Gear runs sort of low at the very top - climb carefully

βeta: What a lovely climb. Quite damp and slippy. Imagine it’s a very different proposition in the summer.

βeta: Lead climb to 2/3rds up past the crux, to set up a sling 3 point belay in practise for MPA award. Good route

βeta: Good route. Not sure it’s worthy of the 3 stars though. Gears bomber and plentiful
