Rockfax Description
Climb the main corner to the roof as for Horatio's Horror then traverse right, with a crucial foot change on a shiny 'button', to reach the base of the continuation crack. Up this to a ledge and an exit on the left on huge holds. © Rockfax

Climbed to Horatio's horror, and swopped across to that. Wow what a great crack climb - loved it.

Compared to similar graded climbs further along the edge, this is more like S 4a!! What shiny button?! If there is one I never saw it. Nice climbing though.

Can't believe I hadn't done this before - great fun, soft touch but good moves and positions. The "shiny button" isn't strictly necessary.

First ever lead, frosty, cold. Struggled with gear but was encouraged to move on. Fell, gear ripped and decked on boulders. Memorable. Returned a few years later to find it was a piece of piss. Moral: cut your teeth on a VDiff!
