12m. Move easily up to a block ledge at the start of the zigzag crack. Well protected moves up the initial crack lead to a committing traverse left on hollow but good holds, pull into the continuation crack and good wires then finish slightly leftwards up easier ground. © ROCKFAX

Lead clean. Straight- forward starting moves (good pro). Climbed a little too high before the hand traverse and had to down climb but at least it gave me a high runner for the traverse! Scariest bit was very precarious placing of gear after the traverse. Easy finish up the pinnacle.

Top roped clean on sight. Protection looks a bit sparse in places but the moves are all do-able. Enjoyed the traverse once I got onto it. Want to come back and lead it now!

Very fingery crack with a hollow flake at the crux! Aptly named: the top gear was so insecure, it just lifted out... :o

No really hard moves but steadiness helps when placing wires at the rest after the traverse.
