140m, 4 pitches. From the corrie, Head up the goat track until just beyond the fingers (if you can see em!) before leaving the track and walking up the steep grass into a shallow gully (well trodden). Route starts from a ledge on the left of the shallow gully with a thread belay low down. Could easily be done in 3 pitches with a 60M rope. Nice route in big boots when everything is soaking wet, but you still want to climb! Pitches 3 and 4 are the best.
