26m. Another wandering and intimidating classic on which care is required to protect the second adequately. Climb to the top of the pillar then the groove above until its is possible (essential) to head left to the first of a series of ledges. Move left to a peg belay. Move up and left to more ledges then follow these back right to an exposed exit (3b).

Found the start of the traverse more in keeping with 4c/5a . The moves on Cameo (E1 5a ) I felt more secure on . Overall a worthwhile and varied route though chossy at the top .

I agree with some of the comments above. The move onto the traverse felt much more like 4c, but the 1st part of the 2nd pitch was fine ... it's just chossy for the last few metres.
