Rockfax Description
A naughty little number that has some surprisingly-good climbing, though the route is all too brief. Start at the edge of the ledge, before the short downclimb to the main platform.
1) 15m. Climb either of the cracks which converge at 5m. Continue up the series of right-trending cracks to a huge ledge and belay.
2) 9m. Move right along the ledge to an easy broken corner and finish up this. © Rockfax

In one pitch. Climbed up the corner at the left hand side of the back of the ledge (right of the slabs) for fun.

Surprisingly hard given it's grade - seemed harder than any of the Diffs we'd done that day, but maybe my crack climbing sucks.
