[Tearg Wall, 2 kb]12m. A superbly positioned climb taking the line of least resistance up the wall, the start can feel committing but the protection higher up is superb. Start up the short crack to reach a line of good but slightly rickety holds, move left then rock up with conviction to stand on a good ledge. Move right to a thin crack and follow this to a solid PR make a long pull past this, crux, to reach the top. © ROCKFAX

It's only E2 if you can clip the peg before committing to the crux. (I couldn't quite get it from the ledge, but could rock up a little to clip it then come down again before going for it.) Great sequence and overall a really good route.

A good route, but too cruxy for three stars.

Brilliant climbing, well worth three stars despite its relatively short length. A spicy feeling rockover low down and clipping the peg whilst mid-crux make for quality entertainment.
