Rockfax Description
A sustained and much sought-after tick that follows the right-hand side of the grey wall. Start at a short rib right of Wogs.
Climb the easy rib just left of the shallow overhung cave until below a short white corner. Pull up into the corner and continue via a steep bulging wall, two pegs, to beneath an overlap. Using a suspect block with care, pull up and left into a corner and progress up this with interest to the top. © Rockfax

Loved this route just really gutted I took at the 2nd ring peg, so annoying! Route reading from there was difficult, some large left side pull holds, that weren't obvious from the ground. Soft 5c climbing and great flowing movements in my opinion.

alice fuller 01/Oct/14 Lead β

gear beta well appreciated, thanks Pete enjoyed the climb. Never thought I would lead it when I seconded it a few years ago:)

Had to rest at the second peg as I couldn't work the crux out due to the odd rock being hard to read
