[The Slot (corner crack on right) to Wogs (tree top left marks top of route), 4 kb]

Rockfax Description
A burly pitch that follows a jamming crack up the corner on the left of the square-cut buttress that is perched above a ledge. Start by scrambling to the ledge and a belay under the corner.
Enter the corner strenuously and jam away up the crack to a rightward exit near the top. © ROCKFAX
