Rockfax Description
A very good piece of climbing at the grade which is well protected and satisfyingly varied. Start 2m right of the arete of Devonleigh at a well-worn patch of ground.
Climb the wall that leads left under some small overhangs to a ledge below a much larger roof. Climb the crack on the right using big flakes to the summit. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
