16m. Follow the scoop delicately out right to the arete and climb to a ledge; possible belay. Take the top pitch of Cave Crack to finish.

A nice climb, although not a patch on the Indirect (E1) or Cave Crack (HVS). The short second pitch that traverses left just under the roof to the nose is the highlight (4c?), and might be a little too exposed for some! An alternative, much easier finish is off right at 4a/4b.

Final moves out from the roof are wild at the grade (4b). Definitely NOT one of those VS 4bs that should be HS.

The right hand finish is closer to Mod/Diff than 4a/b.
