14m. The narrow slab gives delicate moves just below the ledge that cuts across the buttress. Finish via a thin crack.

Refreshing to get a route of this quality without any polish so I'll give it an extra star! More like HS 4b though, or possibly VS 4b owing to the lack of protection on the initial slab. I climbed it easily and my usual max on grit is Severe, and I'd had a 40 minute epic on a VDiff earlier in the day!

ok so it's not 5a but i did it in the wind and it was scary!
gear isnt great

Can't see how this is 5a. I soloed right up the middle and found it a breeze, if I missed something it must be a bit contrived given the proximity the adjacent routes. VS just for the run out.

once soloed this 10 years ago,led it today.
very artificial but it is clean and worth doing.
lots of sufficiant holds and i think a side runners in crack top left make this feel like 4c

Small and so very escapable but worth doing.
