8m. The shallow scoop in the left-hand side of the east-facing wall has a tricky bulge (delicate) and not much in the way of gear. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Starting few meters right of the descent path just, below a small roof at the top of the crag. Climb boldy but easily up the ledges to reach the break under the roof and welcome cams. Traverse right and finish around the roof,

The crazy man took us up this one where there is no gear placement until you have nearly finished the damned thing! Very good practice for fingers nips and fine balance on the sides of feet

Completely unprotectable first half. Not too hard but still very unnerving. Loads of gear in the break protecting nice moves round the overhang.

Felt really bold, probably because it was rather dirty, and the last move was pretty damn hard. Really good route though, two stars for me.

Bold but easy bottom bit. went right instead of direct as wasn't very warmed up and didn't fancy a struggle with the green ness.. nice though!
