14m. Mild but bold. Bridge up the gully then hand-traverse out left (crux - very hard for the short) to gain the front face which is climbed leftwards to a finish up the delicate slabby groove (poorly-protected), then the arete on the right.


The 'poorly protected' groove at the top has a good nut in it, the very last moves are a touch run out but the climbing is about diff, friendly angle with good holds. The crux would be very hard for a short person

the climb was good, but i would recommend a day with lots of sun as the last slab that i presume gives it its name is becomming covered in milldew. (very slippery when wet)

This is Vdiff. The start is well protected as you can place a good wire before you start the traverse, once on the traverse you have got a very good break to use as hand holds. The top groove is excellent and has at least two good runners.

Bit of a pokey start for a V Diff, but not sustained enough to deserve severe.
