10m. Start at the bolt and thread belay on the left side of the alcove as for Thrillennium. The climb takes the bulging wall to the left of Thrillennium.

Undercut steeply left past the first roof (peg). Move up to the hole, a second peg and an an in-situ thread. Now undercut up to a sidepull a small pocket and a peg (crux). Make finishing moves up the wall past a final peg with a little help from the left arete. When you abseil in it is advisable to give the top holds a brush, the route is prone to seepage but it does get the sun.

Route was cleaned on abseil and equipped with pegs and thread. I also pre placed the quickdraws on the pegs and thread as I have been suffering with tendinitis recently and wanted to give myself more of a chance. Unfortunately I had to take a point of aid on the crux. I then pulled the ropes and Adam Haward lead climbed the route clean with no rests. (I managed to slip over on the approach to the silver birch abseil and now have a gash in my buttock which needs hospital attention, be careful here).
