20m. Climb to the overlap then use the flakes on the right to reach a traverse leading out left to a rest in the Monk's Groove. Move left and climb the crack until a rapid exit to easy ground can be made.

Now this one should have the heart flutter symbol for the first 30ft

It has two bomber runners, one before the lower crux and one before the traverse. Then there is the good runner in the groove of Mohammed, then I got 3 good runners in the crack. It's not that scary but the crack is pretty useless if you get too much gear in it and a reachy move by a small edge is needed.

Enjoyed this. Soft for the grade I thought: the gear in the first half is maybe not super-solid but the climbing isn't too technical, and the crux on the upper wall is very safe. Wouldn't baulk at E1? Despite sounding wandering it's actually a good climb up a reasonably decent line; certainly worth a star.

A while since I did this, but I remember it felt a little out there moving round onto the ramp of Mohammed.
