20m. A spectacular-looking outing. Begin directly below the beak and climb onto a ledge on the left with difficulty. Climb up and right then cross the overhang on good holds. Thrilling but manages to feel slightly artificial.

Very enjoyable. A bit of arete climbing, followed by a bit of slab climbing topped off with a easy roof. The roof looks hard but isn't too bad with good gear.

Artificial? Can't say I was too bothered by that, it was a fun route with varied climbing styles. Roof is easy enough but I felt the air beneath me! There's a sheep on the ledge in the middle - don't put your hand in fresh poo - it's not fun!

Enjoyable, felt like HVS 5b, the crux move has good gear at your hands. I don't think it merits a heart symbol.
