22m. Start on the left and climb the 'coffin' crack to a chockstone, then move right and climb the wall (a bit bold) to a possible stance (4c). Climb to the roof then traverse round the arete to the right to a short finishing crack (4b).

Top pitch is spectacular but easy for 4b.

The protection is poor (should be HVS). Interesting top pitch !!
Steve Barker - 19/Jul/04

I guess the crux is the boldness required to lean out over a very suddenly exposed wall and reach up and out. I also wondered about protection for that move but it is there.
