10m. Climb the wide cracks on the front face of the buttress. Head right at the top to the finish of Tinsel's Tangle.

This route really needs a vote option for S 4a! I assume the VS grade is a mistake left over from the BMC guide as it's nowhere near that. But quite pleasant nonetheless. Direct finish would be interesting...

Totally with Fiend on this one - onsight solo, it felt more like easy HS / hard S, with a move of two (particularly the topout!) sneaking into 4b. Nice quick warm-up for the harder routes in the area.
