|40m, 2 pitches. Quoting the guide book: A good introduction to climbing on this side of the valley, exposed with modest protection (read very poor protection).|
Start just right of the quarried hole
1 70 feet. The wall is climbed trending first right then back left to a good ledge overlooking the hole. Climb the edge for a few feet until an easy traverse right(Now an unpleasent heather and dirty traverse), round the cutaway rib, leads to a stance with a thread belay (Never found thread belay).
2 60 feet. Climb the wall above the stance eventually moving right to a rake leading left. Block belay (The block appears to have been eaten by the heather which now overhangs the slab and a leader would have to fight through VERY VERY steep armpit deep heather with just a small tree for holds. There is a large tree about 10m above, but comunication is difficult)
