Capicua** 4c
60m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Start on the far right-hand side of the main face at a scratched cross. A decent route, though the gear is rather spaced.
1) 4+, 20m. Climb the easy white slab, then an imposing brown streak, up the right-hand side of the open bay to a stance on the ridge.
2) 4, 25m. Trend leftwards back up the left-hand side of the rib to eventually join the ramp that runs across the upper part of the main face. A right-hand version is much easier (2+) but only has one solitary bolt in a 25m pitch. © ROCKFAX

First pitch only as couldn't find the route for P2, if it was there I just couldn't see the bolts. First pitch was lovely although you have to be happy to scramble up the first 15 metres unprotected :-) Ah...just read down other comments and I was obviously looking for bolts that just weren't there, I should have just gone for it as the climbing was easy at that point!

Top pitch felt like a 2+ with only 1 bolt and 1 old peg. Fun and exposed little adventure.
