35m, 2 pitches. Start at a small corner, 15m left of the huge block sat under the roof. Unusually thuggy climbing. 1) 4c, 15m. Climb the corner to a ledge at the fault-line. 2) 5b, 20m. Climb the crack above then undercut the long roof rightwards to an exposed exit groove (thread). Finish up this. © ROCKFAX
