70m, 2 pitches. Bloody amazing slab climbing right of Northumberland Wall, weaving right along a seam, straight up on better holds to easier ground before a bold minimalist crux back left to join NW unto the belay ledge. P2 takes the boundary of black and white rock to join NW at the break. Take the usual micro-gear.
