Rockfax Description
10m. The long rift is an old-style classic, beware the odd loose block. After the second big chockstone, stay close to the outside for the best finish, transferring to the right arete when it finally gets too wide to bridge, or just ramble up the back. © Rockfax

hard couple of first moves top out easy but rope drag on rock is bad!

Alt leads on a 14m route! Ridiculous switch due to rope drag, Rach did meat of t' climb. Quality, requires imaginative moves.Loved the wide bridging of the much skipped second phase.

Couldn't be bothered to tie on and second, so soloed to get the gear. The chockstones are loose!

Nice route if you finish up the outside above the second chockstone. Easier in descent than ascent!
