10m. Climb the right-hand crack of and inverted Y to the junction and continue direct. The best route hereabouts.

Upper section a bit dusty, at least when I've been on it. Well protected.

The bouldery direct start is good at 5c.

The first half/two thirds is superb. the last few feet spoil it a bit because of the dust that washes down from above. Worthwhile all the same. The crux is low down so get your gear in early.

I think I will agree with all the votes, fair at VS 4c, safe but stiff moves early on. Nice enough.

Low crux and bomber gear, yep had a climber fall on me from this :S

Hard start for the grade, pleasant VS thereafter. The top is a disgrace - clearly overused by groups whose ropes have cut into the earth. All the loose stuff needs shovelling off (not while I'm at the bottom, mind)
Pekkie - 10/Jul/05

More like 5a at the start
Rob Davies - 28/Jul/06

Bit stiff to start but its all there if you look. Pleasant route although very muddy at the top at the moment, could do with a stiff brush.
Karl Taylor - 21/May/08

Top cleaned off early 2010.
