140m, 4 pitches. 1. 45m 4b Start at the foot of the diagonal fault leading into DCC. Climb a crack in the slab (tricky to start) to easier ground. If the obvious 5b forked crack in the slab higher up is to be climbing belay lower down, no belay on big ledge 2. 30m 4a Climb vegetated steps to belay underneath the red wall. 3. 30m 4b Climb cracks in the red wall to a grassy ledge. 4. 45m 5b Move up and left into the right facing corner over two overlaps to a possible belay (20m). Continue up left and back right to regain corner and easier angled rock.
