45m, 2 pitches. Graded 6a in guide but 2nd pitch probably deserves 6b. Careful with route finding too, the right way shouldn't be that loose.

A surprisingly amenable and airy escapade with a nicely consistent top pitch. Start at the large lime-green blob of graffiti.
1 25m F6a [6B] Follow Thirty-nine Year War up over its initial bulge to easy ground at the base of a white scoop. Step up and clip the bolt in the narrow borehole then go diagonally right and up onto the broad ledge. Traverse right (as for A Song for the Shadows) to its double 12mm ring belay station.
2 20m F6b [8B] Move up slightly leftwards from the belay onto a projecting resting foot hold and follow the short borehole above to an open resting ledge on the right (all as for A Song for the Shadows). Traverse back left and reach around for a large, hidden layaway then continue straight up to a resting scoop on the right. A short easy section now leads to an exposed final bulge; swing out left under the final bolt with some celebratory trickiness to reach the double 12mm ring abseil station.

βeta: A toaster-sized jug on p1 is loose. Makes it trickier to not use.
