12m. A more delicate right-hand finish to the previous climb.

Bottom footholds are very polished. Ignore them, smear with your right, get your left straight up to huge flat foothold then haul until you're standing up.

Barely independant of Nelson's Slab, and with the crux of the latter still the hardest part. Would only give the slab moves 4b and question its validity as a route.

too right- avoiding the better holds for two moves on an existing classic does not a new route make

Hard to believe this gets HVS 5b - more like VS 5a, and slightly more bold than Nelson's Slab.

The hard move is just off the floor and then it's easy slab climbing. I agree it's more VS5a
