Rockfax Description
One of the best single-pitches at the grade on the Culm Coast. Good protection from wires. Start around 8m right of the arete below a small quartz patch.
Climb up a thin crack-line to the quartz patch and continue to a small ledge above. Finish up the wall and cracks, keeping just left of a large patch of vegetation. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The guide appears to have Solid Air and Shivering Timbers in the wrong order and has them numbered incorrectly on the diagram.

no gear of merit beyond half height. HVS 4b more appropriate given the snappy nature of the rock.

Good but I couldn't get any gd pro in above half height so ran it out above crap to get to big breaks at the top..... This could however have been shivering timbers due to the guidebook mess up.
