Intense, thin moves up the centre of the slabby wall. Protection is good on the really thin bits. Start 4m right of the big tree at the base of the crag.
28m. Move up past an easily-missed nut placement with increasing difficulty to a thin crack at 16m, good small wires. A very thin sequence up and then left gains a good peg in a diagonal crack. Move up the crack for 2m and then break rightwards across the wall, on tricky ground, to the top.

The big tree has been chopped down!

Another good route on the slab but not as sustained as Flash Dance and with a shorter crux section. Probably only two stars.
