Rockfax Description
16m. Climb the central groove to a green exit onto a large ledge. The left side of the face behind gives a pleasant and well-protected continuation. The 'obvious' leftward descent isn't one! © Rockfax

Really enjoyed it. Top part felt like 3 mini-crux. Worth more than a lonely star.

Did this as a warm up climb and found it to be a great little route which seems to get missed by the masses and adds to its charm.
