Rockfax Description
They don't come much better than this at the grade. Start below the wide central groove.
Move up to a high ledge and from its right-hand side embark on the fingery and technical open groove to an easing midway. Continue more strenuously but on good holds to an awkward final layback sequence. © Rockfax
