Rockfax Description
This route takes a line up the left-hand steep wall of Ramp C. Start a few metres left of the edge and climb the broken ramp up into a niche. Move up left from the niche via a crack to gain a slab. Move left and finish up a crack on the right. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Start just left of the corner from the left most slab. Follow a broken ramp line past a small slab at 2/3 height (crux) to an easy escape up a double crack. Excellent protection throughout.
