Rockfax Description
12m. The best route hereabouts. The left-hand side of the face is climbed starting up a short crack and tending slightly left on holds that are invariably a disappointment. Finish up the flake in the left arete. Escape from the top is problematical! © Rockfax

Awesome moves on the slab. Pack the crack at the bottom of the slab with gear (I got 4!) and balance up and left for slightly better holds towards the top.

Lead by Tony, 2nd climb of day. Handholds were not positive. Once committed to moves feet and hands held well but committing was hard.
