8m. Good climbing up the shallow cracks in the centre of the slab.

Similar to Rinty, but a touch more secure.

I didn't find the gear amazing - a few small cams in the flared crack, none of which inspired much confidence.

I found it may aswell just be soloed, pretty poor gear

this route is really not very well protected. you can get a nut in low down and them a microcam placement before the crux (which seemed hard for 4). the next decent placement is just before the top out. it would be possible to get 1 or 2 more okish nut placements but then you'd be loosing the best hand holds on the route. i think this route will push most vs leaders.

Gears not that bad. I'll agree it's not brilliant but there's a bomber medium nut at half height which protects the crux
