Rockfax Description
A strong line and a favourite first climb that follows the tree-draped corner above a small railed-off cave. Start 20m left of the huge corner of Sarcophagus at a small, railed-off cave.
Climb up just right of the cave to a corner at 4m. Move up and climb the right wall of the corner to ledges on the right. Climb back leftwards to below a tree in a corner. Climb the corner on good holds, past the tree (possible belay) to the top. © Rockfax
