28m. A good route which uses the start of Eight Gauge to gain the fine crack to the left of Brazen Buttress. Climb the pillar on the front right-hand side of the through cave, then step right onto a ramp (as for Eight Gauge). Follow the ramp to a crack in the smooth wall. Climb the crack and another crack on the right until the wall blanks out above a jug. Make a tricky move up and left to easier ground.

Clearly not done often! Excellent to the jug. I then went left and ended up in a dangerous rubble filled chimney. Then jibbered up its right arete. I suggest you don't do this! Still don't understand where it goes.

We must have done different routes, thought this was a stunning line, excellent climbing, probably e2 5c.

Agree with Felix, very good route, with 1 short 5c section, needs working out, glad I wasn't on the sharp end!
