35m. A terrific line. Start from the ledge right of Heart of Darkness. Climb the corner crack, to gain a small ledge. Pull slightly rightwards to reach the roof, traverse left and pull over to enter a shallow groove - off you go!

This climbs the RH groove above the roof, gained via a beckoning flake. 'Nipper's Route' traverses further left before pulling over.

This is a good little route but its not quite 6a and you can protect the crux with several cams. Still worth e3 though coz its a pretty committing layback ! and whats more, theres no gear for a few moves after it !
ps: for what its worth, it can be climbed direct at the same grade !
