[Shining clough, 1 kb]100m. The clough to the right of the crag, named on the OS 1:25K map but not on the Harveys/BMC. The bottom falls rarely form but when they do give a good 8m pitch of III. The rest is worthwhile in its own right, with a short icefall pitch and several shorter steps.

ste_d - Solo rpt - 28/Feb/13 with mik

Forced out towards middle from half height due to thin ice on right, which made it more interesting than previously when I have stuck to the right.
