A splendid pitch that features a forceful finger-crack. Start in an overhung sentry-box. Move up and right to clear the overhang and gain the wall above. Climb the wall rightwards on good finger-holds to the base of a thin crack in the upper wall. The fine, thin crack is climbed with difficulty to a short headwall.

The climbing may only be 6c but the runout is definitely 6c+. Felt E4 6a in old money. The climbing is good but a bit disjointed, the lower half being much easier.

Superb route. Its a little run out (though I wouldn't agree with Tom that it would be E4), but it should have the technical rather than the pumpy symbol in the guidebook.

A large block has come out at the start, taking the first bolt with it.
