20m. An agreeable natural line with steady protection and thoughtful non-strenuous climbing.
Start up the left side of the rib (small wire) to reach a ledge and a welcoming vertical nut slot ('hexs' useful). (all as for Night of the Comic Dead). Follow the ramp line diagonally rightwards past two new peg runners (with optional good protection variously down on the right) to reach a small complex overlap. Pull over rightwards into the scoop above, peg, and finish delicately rightwards to a shared double ring abseil station.

Originally E1 5a. Re-cleaned and two extra pegs added in 2012.

βeta: had to bail because of seepage and tied off the mid height peg with a 60cm sling. let me know if you retrieve it, or just leave it as in situ tat. peg really needs to be tied off anyway, its rotten and clipping a quickdraw directly to the eye will lever the blade up and out of the rock in a fall.
