18m. Climb rock and two veg into the open groove (ancient bolt runner) and exit right around the capping overhang.

The veg is gaining the upper hand and possibly constitutes the crux. Some good moves above but hardly 3-star.

come on this is struggling to be worth a star, ice axes helpful at the start

Seconded. Some tricky moves that can either be done thuggish or committing ways, with well spaced gear. The start is neither here, nor indeed there, but only 2 stars.

Needs more bolts than it currently has. Would make an excellent F6a.
