12m. Climb steeply into the scoop then balance up its left edge using a thin crack before finishing straight up or rightwards into the wide crack which is a touch easier.

For me another Castle Naze Classic. Must return and do it again in - sticky rubber.

A nice balancy first move, good footwork in the scoop, then up the thin crack and high feet and a big pull to top out. A Classic.
Brave... as no real gear until the thin crack!

I don't think it's 5b, certainly not if you take the more logical right hand finish.
Nice route though.

P.S. Not sure how it warrants the 'strenuous' symbol either - it's a slab apart from the last couple of moves!

HVS 5a & not sustained as suggested by the symbol
