20m. A long, thin crack up the left-hand edge of the slab, gives a pleasant and well protected pitch.

I wonder why this lovely little climb does not get any stars? Give it a go it is worth two stars.

I would agree. Definitely deserves a star or two.

A wonderful route, definitely worth stars. Would say a good 5a but well protected all the way

Would also say 5a. Protection took a little bit of thought, especially low down, but was generally good.

Big loose block near the start.

good route. Block at the bottom is very loose. Moved a couple of inches when I tested my nut placement, but did not want to trundle it as the ropes were coiled at the bottom.
