10m. The slab just right is climbed direct on rounded breaks.

Bold - first gear placement above half height

Balanced padding between rounded breaks and protection above the difficulties, could be HVS for exposure.

If you go direct up the slab it's very bold to start and quite technical throughout. Much more deserving of HVS than, say Bachelors or Bengal Butts

thought this climb was great and would give it two stars. went strait up the slab and it was quite bold, but if taken steadily the holds are there

Upper section of the slab is currently very dusty and vegetation is creeping in. Not good when many of the moves rely on friction!

Top of the slab still dusty, its a shame coz the lower slab has good moves. This is difficult for VS, top end VS or bottom end HVS
