40m, 2 pitches. [I've given this description to guidebook writers about once a decade for over thirty years but it's never been put in the guide. Just about as good as anything of its standard (about HS) on the mountain. So I'll try again here - now with metric lengths:]
From the top of pitch 2 of Gashed Crag move left about 10m to belay below an obvious line of weakness in the slabby wall.
3a. 20m. Climb a shallow groove about 30ft well to the left of the left side of the Gash. Move left 3m along a ledge. Climb a recess to a small overlap, and exit R (crux). Continue for 3m then move L to a small stance.
4a. 20m. Step R and follow a juggy line of weakness to a thin horizontal crack. Traverse R 60m (good footholds materialise the whole way) to gain a ledge on the arete (junction with ordinary route). Very enjoyable.
