Rockfax Description
The crack leading to a wide chimney. Up this and its continuation, past a tree then either find a lower-off, or continue bravely to the top. A bit of an oddity which is seldom climbed. © ROCKFAX

Got to the much then didn't know where to go. Going over to the tufa groove belay looked improbable and couldn't see anything above trees so lowered off.

great route - guidebook description is inaccurate. did a different finish to the one in the guide.. was supposed to finish at the Tufa Groove belay I think but ended up going right past a tree then up a slab and small overhang. either way lots of fun and highly recommended.

Rockfax topo is wrong. Exits directly up from the niche and then goes left. Also is 28m not 18m.

A horrendously scary route - "seldom climbed" for a reason!
