Fine technical climbing which is sadly short-lived and escapable. Start up easy rock to gain the wall which is followed on some thin holds. © ROCKFAX
A little gem. The face to the left and just right of the huge pillar give fine technical climbing throughout. (From Gary Gibson website).

Lovely technical climbing between bolts 2-5. Very easy before and after that. Went direct for the crux but fell slapping up from the massive side-pull to the grassy jug. Got it 2nd go.

The good climbing is very short lived. Hard for grade if you go very direct. Unsatisfying if you don't
