The beckoning roof-crack is a beauty and high in the grade. From the ledge on Wall and Crack, do battle with the roof-crack - proficiency at jamming helps, a lot. From the jugs on the lip pull over then exit rightwards much more easily. A Direct Finish, E2 5c goes straight up to the capping overhang, then exits left. © ROCKFAX

Took one fall then did it ground up. E1 in the guidebook, at least E2 and hard at the grade. Lovely route though

First aid climb. 2 PA + 1 prussick on rope. Easy 5b, horizontal with crap hand and no foot holds, really?! Don't understand!

Took a bloody long time to get this one but once using the crack with a foot jam it was so much easier.

Great fun - safe but needs a bit of determination to commit. Definitely not E2 though.
