12m. From blocks below the slab, trend right to a slot then climb straight up (well-polished chips!) to a good ledge. Start on the right but trend left to an exposed exit. Another serious one.


Another good bold route although the chips are bigger than its neighbour the route is noticable harder, especially leaving the half-way ledge.

Another chop route. by the time the protection comes your at the top. Surely an unprotectable crux deserves a mention!

Not a bad one, the start is tricky when damp, and it does sometimes get a bit tricky when wet! That unprotectable crux isn't officially on the route, but should be worth a VS at least.

Wasn't as polished as I feared. I placed a runner in the crack on the right on the big ledge otherwise I had a deckable runout for the last moves. I thought that was off route, but from this rockfax guide (start on the right but trend left), I reckon I was okay!

I put one small cam in at the ledge, couldnt see anything else that I thought was on the route. Stepping of the ledge felt a bit spicy for a HVD, but its all over with quickly
