Rockfax Description
A short but pleasant pitch that is the easiest way to access the Bower and which was the first route to tickle the edges of this fine face. From a flake make a precarious move right to a polished ledge which leads to a slabby groove and follow this to the Bower. Escape is by abseil unless you are proficient at HVS. © Rockfax

Interesting for HS but a really good little route anyway and lands you in an unusual position for a grit route.

i thought it was quite stiff for hs- i put a few newb friends up it and all of them shat themselves. the top did feel a bit scary. nice and un-green though.
