26m. A very good route, and the best-protected extreme on Rob's Slab: bottom end of the grade (arguably only E2). Start on top of the blocks which have fallen away from Rob's Slab. Climb leftwards into the corner and move up to good but hidden holds on the left. Move up leftwards and gain a good hold in the crack on the slab proper. Make a hard move up right to get established on the slab, then follow the crack to the top.

βeta: We saw a big rockfall with a dozen of brick size chunks coming straits to the right of the belay ledge. As there appears to be more unstable stuff, it is advisable to access the belay ledge from the left NOT FROM RIGHT.
