37m. One of the best pitches on the crag with good sustained technical climbing and with generally excellent protection.
Begin just right of the ground level tree. Move up to a break and go left to a litte corner with a peg above. From the peg move delicately left around the shallow rib to a slab beneath a slim crack. Follow the lovely crack past pegs to a horizontal break. Move left and climb to the top past a tree.

A definite 3 star route by any standard, first bold, then a trick move then pumpy.

No way 6a; 5c and pumpy makes it E3 and the start feels a bit bold. A good E3 to go for, the pegs lure you on.

I agree, fine climb, def 5c
