Pedestal Route >>
28m. A great outing through some impressive territory. Climb the flake-crack up the left-hand side of the huge flake of The Pedestal. To stop the rope jamming, try fixing a runner out left to direct it away from the crack, then pull over the bulge and finish up the deep groove. (The S4a variation as described in the rockfax guide).

A bit greasy which made it quite scary. Top very green but huge holds.

Did in one pitch. Very enjoyable. Tried "normal" pedestal route but I misread guide and told leader to go left under the pedestal. Rope prone to jam under the roof.
