Rockfax Description
The left-hand wall of the cave leads right, then steeply back left to reach the capping roofs. Finish powerfully through these. Excellent, all the right holds just where you need them and the difficulties are short-lived. © ROCKFAX

I lead this one too! Fell awkwardly just after the cave but got back on and managed to make it to the top. Such a good climb.

Gave it a good go. Managed to make it up into the little cave but lowered off from there. Powerful towards the end. Going to make this my Project - must have finished it by the time I leave!
