Rockfax Description
A neat little pitch. Start at a thin crack just left of a larger left-leaning crack.
Climb the thin crack and then head left along a narrow ramp above the overlap to finish on the ridge. Descend easily down the South Ridge. © Rockfax

Really quite a good climb with quite a few nice moves one after another one smallish area of quite easily avoidable bad rock otherwise good quality - 2 stars surely. Quite well protected.

Lots of loose rock. Abandoned 1 nut (at half height) to protect down climb. retreated from final traverse.

Still good

Nearly came off on the last move when a foot hold gave way. A death grip on the rounded hold saved me from a massive swinging fall. My mood was crimped by a seagull eating my lunch.

The diagonal crack requires good footwork and care as a vital hold was a bit lose. The climbing gets steadily harder but the crux is short lived and the top is near.

Lovely climb, well worth doing. Hard enough to make you think, but always a hold you can use in reach.

Low in the grade, but excellent climbing, on amazing rock. Good one to warm up.

Easy climbing to the peg, which I clipped! Then branch left with your feet in the crack. The moves are really nice, focusing your balancing abilities. You do feel slightly run out, but on positive crimps. When I hit the massive jug it was an amazing feeling seeing what I had just done.

Super steady, good gear and not that bad overall. Good 1st HVS.

A smart little pitch, but on snappier rock than the other routes we did. A handhold broke on the crux move, which fortunately had gear at waist height.
