Rockfax Description
18m. The original and best? A ramp on the lower tier leads to a heather cornice and belay on the ledge. Gain the slab with difficulty then pass the big pocket and then the notch in the roof. © Rockfax

Top section (bottom was grotty), took few attempts to get established on the slab... Significantly easier afterwards.

Did p1 which has a crazy top out through thick heather, couldn't get off the floor for p2 so Twigger did it

Soloed the move off the ledge just to see if I could. I could, but it felt tough for 5b!

Couldn't get established on the slab. Didn't feel that the bottom section added anything whatsoever to the route - recommend starting on the ledge.

Neither of us could boulder out the first moves on the upper slab. Lower tier pitch pointless. Time to retreat!

Wasp nest next to the crux made it interesting
