14m. The slabby face 1m right of the corner is climbed by a series of mantelshelf moves. Finish up the shallow groove.

Nice warm-up at the start of the day, worth a star. Although having said that, I only found out there were three routes up the slab after I'd done it, so I may have done a combination of this and the thing to its left. Although I did use one big mantelshelf, just for the name.

Not sure which of the routes on this face I did, but certainly remember 'mantleshelfing' a fair old bit. Thought it was a bit stiff at the grade, but it was blinkin' hot and full of midges.

This and It's a Cracker are the same route in my book, both perhaps HVD
