32m, 2 pitches. A welcome addition to the quarry. The crux is a single hard move past a bolt on the second pitch; otherwise it’s only F6a+. The abseil from the top rings reaches the ground in 30 metres. Start on a raised shelf 10m right of Still Nice and Still Sleazy
1 17m F6a [7B] Take a direct line up the lower wall and then follow the centre of the narrowing pillar above (avoiding any loose ground to the sides). Where it finishes move up to hidden holds and step across right onto a small projecting ledge. Climb the crystalline crack in the corner ensuring that you keep left away from any looseness as far as is possible. Walk up the grass slope to a double ring belay. Take care with the various blocks etc hereabouts.
1 15m F6B+ [6B] Step up right and reach for some hidden edges then make a very hard span horizontally left to a much need triangular hold. Move up to the comfy resting shelf above then climb directly up pleasant ground on a continuous series of good holds. At the top swing across left to a double ring abseil station.

βeta: Please be aware of the looseness in this area. If climbers are below, better ask them to move as rocks will come down at some point while climbing the routes here. Helmets are a must.
