26m. The gully cutting left of the biggest overhangs is a great introduction to climbing. Pass either side of the block (easiest to the right) to the base of the chimney (possible stance). Continue up the chimney, using massive chipped holds, to a choice of exits. © ROCKFAX

typical black rocks climb bit green at the bottom but fun once you get on it with the fun move of trying to go round the overhang and on to the slabby face.

Nice route. Stuck to the left crack only in the chimney, and tackled the overhang crack by a combination of back-and-footing and laybacking. More like VDiff this way.

Tried this and chickened out a couple of weeks ago, retriving gear and climbing down. Much easier this time. Really nice route with a little bit of everything, a bit more exposure at the top would give it the full three stars.
