[Vincent's gone all camera shy., 2 kb]14m. Start right under the chimney and climb into a recess. Use the thin cracks in the roof to get out right, then trend up and left to gain the base of the main rift. Finish up this.

Great fun climb. Rock felt powdery lower down. Bold feeling moves to get into the chimney.

Nice easy climb except a risky move up onto the slab (half way up) after a short run-out, lots of gear.
Morgan P - Lead O/S - 10/Mar/12 with Tom Milburn, Lawrence Ian Furse

Great climb! Just one tricky move to get on the slab then great jug climbing from there. If fluted columns gets 3 stars this definitely deserves them.

al_robinson76 - Lead O/S - 03/Jul/11 with Emma Robinson

Crucial holds were a bit greased up. Basically I was being a pussy and should have manned up. The gear was bomber and the moves were cool.

First climb outside this year! Plenty of midges for company and bats as the sun went down. An enjoyable climb.
