No gear, nsaty landing and awkward - I've always backed off it and it doesn't look like VS

PickPocket, the slab round to the right, is a very pleasant VS 5a and worth a mention in the guide (and a star)

The first half is hard and unprotected. The top is probably easy if you are tall but had one last commiting move for me to reach the jugs.

Pickpocket is 4c and value for money, this is also a good route with a low crux and a great last move on the perched block.

The start isn't unprotected - there's a good size 0 cam in a slot about 3m up ...
