Set apart from the main slab is this popular hairline crack. Start below the thin crack that starts at the top of a low, ground level cut out in the slab.
21m. Take the thin crack in its entirety to the top. Belays left and right. To descend walk along the top of the crag to the abseil point above the main section of the slab; or scramble down steep, grassy ground directly behind the belay and walk back around the base of the crag as for the approach.

A sandbag at E1 5b in the CC guide. Sustained and reachy, but good quality; a mini southwest version of Comes the Dervish! Belays leave a bit to be desired, they are miles off to the side.
