16m. The steep wall used to have some pebbles on its left-hand side. These have fallen off but you can still climb the slab on its right at about the same grade. The flake crack above gives sanctuary. Short-lived but both absorbing and gripping.
FA. Jonny Woodward 1980


The pebbles aren't there anymore, so the route is usually climbed slightly to the right of the original line.

this is an absolute quality route far better than anything in the east such as pebble mill,the route originally came in from the right arete or it can still be started direct up the seam,a few pebbles seemed to have come off,but they dont seem to be of significance, i have done it recently and just as good and absorbing as when i first did it in 1989

A great route and, almost a high ball boulder problem start if you are good at rolling down hills ?!~
