16m. Climb the left-hand arete of the central cave to ledges, then the thin crack (poor small wires) to a bolder exit. Finish easily.

Gear in the crack is...interesting.

Needs a reachy symbol... HVS 5b if you can reach the crucial holds. Dodgy gear.

Looks like the vote distinctly place this between HVS and E1...hmmm...

Quite a tricky little number. There is one great wire placement where you need it, thankfully, as the move to get past it is pretty poky. Not to be sniffed at.

There is a really nice positive micro wire placement above the flared part of the crack. Since this gear is only at waiste height and there is a really solid wire just below feet height for the crux move I'd have said HVS 5b is spot on the money.
