25m. A jolly good route which enjoys a surprising variety of well protected moves. Use double ropes to minimise drag. Start immediately below the large recess at the left end of the crag and climb the left-facing corner easily to a nice ledge. Bridge the groove until forced to move left to the rib, climb this to a second ledge which offers a great thread runner. Move out right to the chimney and slip a wire through the tiny thread on the lip of the roof, mantle this and finish on easier ground to a choice of belays. Si Lynch 2009.
