18m. Climb either crack in the right-hand side of the slab (the right-hand one is easier) to a short jamming crack; up this to a tricky move onto a ledge and an awkward finish on flat holds.

The finish is easy, not akward, there is an obvious finger jug available

What a ridiculous grade ! is someone really trying to say this route is more serious than Central Groove ??

A pleasant HS route when clean, better in winter when the ants at the top don't attack you.

Never hard, but nicely sustained (for a short route anyway) and very plesant.
I dont see why it should be VS 4b though, HS 4b or VS 4c.

What on Earth is the logic behind grading this VS 4b. It has only one hard move (which is probably only 4a really) and it is safer than a very safe thing. Surely HS 4b if not S 4b.

All the same, a very nice route.

This was quite dirty when I did it. Well, not excessively but the whole route had a thin layer of mud over it.
