Wrist Climb* HVD

Rockfax Description
A long outing that builds to an exciting and exposed finale. Start at the base of a red stained corner.
1) 30m. Climb up the red-stained corner until a traverse right leads to another corner. Climb the corner and head leftwards to a ledge and belay next to a gully.
2) 23m. Move down the gully until it is possible to make an exposed traverse left underneath the capping overhang and continue to a good ledge beneath a short corner (possible belay). The short corner is hard but well-protected and leads to a ledge and easier ground to finish. © ROCKFAX

Great traverse under the roof.
Freddie 1 - AltLd O/S - 01/May/10 with Marian, Andyh83

Neil led pitches 1 and 3, Andy pitch 2. Poor communication on pitch 2.... wind.
Alaric - 2nd rpt - 04/Apr/10 with andyfeds, Neil

I led middle pitch under roof - nice but impossible to communicate in the wind!
