Rockfax Description
A fine little climb that packs a mean punch low down. Start at the right end of the overhangs at the base of the pock-marked wall.
Make a steep pull up and left to good holds above the overhang and then make another hard move to enter the base of a small corner. Follow this more easily to the top. © Rockfax

I blame exams for unfitness, and got pretty pumped after the first few moves, but a great position and route for Severe.

Definite HS 4b, although at least the hard moves are reasonably well protected. Had to rest on the rope a couple of times while I worked out the pull up from the flake.

Couldn't get off the floor at first then couldn't get over the bulge. Lowered off, left a load of gear at the bottom and went for it again, this time finding a good high hold. Sandbag?
