Rockfax Description
Lovely, balancy climbing that weaves its way up the steepest part of the face. Protection on the crux is from very small wires. Start 10m up the slope from the tree.
Climb to a peg at 12m and then directly to a thin diagonal break. Place some very small wires, then step up onto the break and balance left up a narrow ramp to double pegs. Move slightly left again and then climb up intricately past two more pegs to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start beneath the rh side of the slab, near an alcove like depression at the base of the slab. Climb up the wall to a peg at 20ft then continue direct to the rh side of a shallow ramp and 2 pegs at its end. Climb the slight bulge above to,and past a projecting peg to reach a large handhold above a further peg. Move up to a narrow white ledge and the top.

Actually had a lot of help from the rope/Dave. Basically aided/boinked the middle third of the climb.

biggest fall i've ever had.... lost balance trying to move on to the ramp... spectacularly rolled down the slab, gear fell out and landed about 2 metres off the ground... scary!

The move above the double pegs gets no easier, nearer 6a! But lovely sustained climbing.

Pleased to get this one. Found the move up the ramp sketchy as hell, and the move from the double pegs really hard. Nick White's guidebook describes how you should 'stride boldly' across the ramp - that wouldn't describe the jibbering movement I made.

TR twice, thought about the lead but left it. Good style.

Another intense experience, but some wonderful delicate balancy climbing across the ramp. Very damp in places, hence the TR. Then it rained again.
