The deep-set corner is a fine line and has climbing to match. Start below the corner.Climb the corner past a perched block to a rest. Increasingly-testing moves lead airily to the top. © Rockfax

Lovely Route, Bold and strenuous at the top.
Daves first lead when none of his pro fell out,a good climb for contortionists .

Good route with a tricky little end .
Lee first attempted to lead it with my belay, reaching a couple of metres below the top, but backed off, climbing down cleanly all the way, leaving the gear. I pulled the rope through and lead it, using the gear left.
Tough finish - especially if you're facing the wrong way and have your back against the left wall that has the (steep) finishing holds on it. Good dramatic route though. Take a big friend for the last few moves!

great climbing up the face, plenty of protection, all the holds are there. Good route to do on damp/ windy days as its sheltered.
Excellent route. More face climbing than corner. Saw a tornado!

Guide book rates this HVS. Climbing is good, tricky finish requiring some 'cornish' moves.
