Rockfax Description
A worthwhile and slightly bold outing with good rock on the hardest climbing. Start below the large overhang.
Climb the unprotected wall below the capping overhang to a welcome peg runner. Continue up to a groove to the right of the roof, crux, and seek the most stable line up the final wall to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the wall (unprotected) under the huge capping roof to a welcome peg runner. Continue up to a groove to the R of the roof (crux) and seek the most stable line to the top.

Led P1. Tom went out left above the overhang for P2 which was easy enough but a little loose.

In one pitch. Naff all gear for ages, don't rely on the rusty peg! Once you get some protection in it is rather pleasant.

More gear than I expected.

All pretty straightforward stuff - took the left-hand route at the crux above the half-height stance. Better holds, but some loose rock.

1st pitch's protection a bit sparse but 2nd pitch is quality.

As one pitch. Protection not as poor as it first seems. Good gear by the crux.

First HVS, not sure it was a good one to attempt. Head slightly L towards the top for the most solid exit.
