30m. Just right of Robs’ Slab is is a thin vegetated disjointed slab. Mostly Severe climbing, with a harder but well-protected crux. Start 2m right of a large vertical slit/cave. Climb past a sapling to an overlap. Surmount this (crux) and continue up the slab until it is possible to swing up and left onto another slab. Follow this to the top taking care with the unpleasant finish.

βeta: CARE NEEDED: A lot of loose rock throughout the route but especially sketchy at the top. Pulling the rope through dislodged a breeze block sized rock from somewhere out of sight on the route which narrowly missed my second! Also could hear rock fall on the routes to the right of this during my climb, there was no one on or above the routes at the time so take care in the area. As mentioned above; the belay tree is in a bramble bush which you have to crawl through. A couple more stakes at this end of the crag would be great.

βeta: The last few meters are in a very dangerous state.

βeta: The tree, which is the primary belay point, is hard to reach in Summer. I had to crawl through brambles to get to it! Also the route is quite loose in places, and care is required to not send rocks hurtling down.
