2 pitches. Classic committing "wall" climbing that overhangs 3m in 30m. Pumpy with spaced but ultimately reasonable protection. From 4m up the ramp climb a right trending corner to jugs at the top. Make tricky moves to and from the break to get the death flake, up this exiting left onto a ramp leading to the upper ledge. Rest for half an hour and tackle the pocketed blank crack, exiting left to topout.

Almost turned into a saga. Head not fully in it, warm and greasy. Twice climbed up to the start of the crux and reversed back to the ground, 3rd go was pretty steady in the end. 28/09/15 Arse. Not properly warmed up, pumped out at the "#2 cam pocket" below the flake. Really nice climbing up to there. Didn't bother finishing so I still get 2/3s of an onsight when I go back........

Finally! Third year - third try. Almost got pumped out at the break, but had just enough to pull the crux to the flake. Direct top section up the 5c crack was easier than I feared. Happy days

Tricky start, bit bold. Not bad for a roadside E5 though.

Didn't think it was as serious, as what i thought it was going to be. Climbed it in the smegest conditions ever, and the smell of that fuckin dead dear easily made it E6!!!
