6m. Trend right to climb the blunt rib in the centre of the slab.

A pleasant little route that makes good use of a crucial pebble. Not 5c! Seems much easier than Shard (HVS 5b) to the left.

Being tall, I found this one very straightforward. Don't remember needing to make use of the pebble.

This is a very good extended boulder problem but the landing is not great. The crux involves standing up on a pebble (can't see how you'd do it without this) and a long stretch for the top. This is a lot harder if you are short. It's still not easy, so between 5b and 5c dependent on height IMO.

Getting from the pebble to the top involves a high sloper and a smear to get the finishing move. For those of average, or less, stature this is going to be technically demanding. I'd give it 5c for sure.

being 6ft tall and good at rockovers makes the top not too bad.
