Start 15 metres up and left of Minster at a blunt, rounded rib just left of a short V-groove, cairn.
1 23m (4b). Climb the rib, using the thin crack on the left as required, until easier slabs lead up and left to good belays at a small, but deep cave.
2 10m (4b). Scramble up left for 8 metres to reach a fine slabby wall. After an awkward start up its right arete, easier ground leads to the top.
