14m. Layback strenuously through the left edge of the roof using the juggy flake then head delicately up then right to the wider crack which splits the final overhang.

Please keep on walking by this great little buttress & undergrading all the routes in the guidebooks then it will remain a great place to climb away from the crowds in the Great Slab area.

Felt like severe when I soloed it; almost called for a top-rope!

One of those routes that has the perfect hold exactly where you're looking for it, every move, and the perfect gear placement at every rest. Go left at the top for variation and a really nice final move.

nice little route. Maybe the start wasn't 4b but I think the moves on the small ripples for your fingers gainging the slab certainly are. All in all I think S 4b characterises this route perfectly as there is some hard 4a / easy 4b climbing but mainly on ballance, with resting positions between them and good protection throughout.

Upgrade (from VDiff!) duly noted and appreciated!
