16m. Start 3m right of Back Off, at the lowest point of the slab. Climb easily up the mini arête, crossing the diagonal crack of Bishop's Move, to the horizontal break. Follow the left-trending crack in the slab above, and make a tricky finish over the slight overlap to the tree (as for Back Off). Adequately protected but the higher placements are fiddly - micros may be useful.

βeta: Pretty stiff for VS especially when you can’t feel your fingers and have no micros. Lovely route though. Harder than Rob’s Crack. More than 1 star.
