A fine introduction to the crag and the only route on which you may have company.
1) 30m. Start below the rightwards trending rib. Climb the rib, first on the left, until you can pull right onto the front at a good ledge. Airy moves over the bulge lead back onto the left side of the rib, which is followed to a belay on an expansive ledge system.
2) 45m. Head rightwards onto the slab and follow it boldly, keeping just to the left of centre all the way to the top. A tricky belay can be found at the right-hand side of the grassy bay. It is best to remain roped for the steep grassy scramble leftwards to the main descent path.

Takes less drainage than other routes here. P2 has 10m of wet grass on top before suitable belay. Stay roped for exit to descent path.

Rib is about Diff, easy moves but holds not always juggy, gear ok. Slab is about Mod, simple fun. Belayed at top of slab using big hex with sling pulled thru gap between boulders, quite secure. Exit to descent is exposed, on steep grass, glad we carried boots up.
