Rockfax Description
A worthwhile easy climb. The ramp trends right then steep rock is climbed left to the huge bivi-ledge and a stance. The juggy corner behind is followed all the way to the moor. © Rockfax

The initial ramp is grubby and overgrown, but the moves off the ramp, to the ledge, and the top section made it worthwhile. As part of my Burbage Valley run.

This was Heather's first day out climbing and her first second ever. John taught her how to belay whilst I led then soloed up after her to run through belaying on the midway ledge.
