Rockfax Description
20m. An interesting line starting up the right side of the tall tower standing close to the buttress. Climb to and up the groove that bounds the tower to its summit. Climb the short steep wall to a higher ledge then step up and traverse round the arete to finish up the top of the groove of Lightning Wall. © Rockfax

Didn't know what to do at the top of the flake so did a sketchy traverse right and might have ended up on the HVS. Didn't really fancy the groove after that!

easy climbing despite the gale blowing

Not much gear, crux is unprotected for both lead and second due to the traverse

Zero pro on the step out onto a lichenous and vegetated wall... left for bolder climbers...

Terrific start flake but high death potential stepping off the terrace
