35m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
34m. A bit of a non-line though interesting and popular, with stacks of good climbing. Climb the right-hand groove to a niche, step down and right onto the face and cross to the far arete and a possible stance just around the corner. Continue across the slab via The Padder to a well positioned finish up Whaup Edge. © Rockfax

Hard start. Stepped onto 1st slab from the bottom rather than traversing down then up it. 2nd pitch great, tenuous move off belay.

Scary traverce as i have removed the bit of gear and the next one was around the corner -so if i would have come off there i would have swung all the way round the corner where his next nut was. then pebbly slab.

Combined pitches, really tricky to rig gear so no drag, i was safe and alicia was safe. made it more interesting! Crosses loads of great terrain, moving onto padder was psychological crux even though i've done the padder before.
