16m. From the gully on the right shuffle left along the highest break to the arete and an easy finish. Not too difficult but exposed and unprotected; a fall would likely prove fatal. © ROCKFAX

Bit lame really. Easy, protectable where it matters and all a bit boring. By the time you get to the exposed bit it's all over anyway.

Dissappointing. Well protected with big cams and not half as exciting as I was led to expect. :(

REALLY VERY GOOD, gear starts well but then is non existent (unless you had a size 6 cam maybe? but that would miss the point of the climb and kill the buzz) as you walk (very easily not 4a) along in a superbly exposed position, especially for the grade. edit 2012: Sadly underrated in the new over the moors guide
