Mae West** HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
Spacey climbing on good holds up the centre of the most impressive section of the crag. Start at a belay on a sloping ledge on the slab below the steep central section of the wall. Photo on page 281.
23m. Move up the slab to its apex and climb the right-slanting corner for 8m to some big holds on the left. Traverse left for 5m to a short crack and good nut. Climb up the crack and the steep ground above, slightly leftwards, to the capping roof. Traverse right under the roof to a rounded arete and make a final awkward move over the roof to finish back at the gearing-up ledge. © ROCKFAX

Nice route easy for the grade but with a great situation, I had quite a bit of rope drag by the top so barely managed to belly flop on the ledge :)

All good holds. The only thing to watch is the rope drag. Sensible rope work and extending gets around that.
