Rockfax Description
16m. The narrow buttress is split neatly by a crack-line. Pull through the roof to reach it, then follow the crack to its end. Balance up the rounded left arete to finish. If at first......... © Rockfax

Nasty top section. Should be HVS/4c IMO. You need a #4 friend to provide any protection for the tower at all, without that it would be even worse. Enjoyed it, but it's well within my grade these days.

top section unnerving and gearless, specially the slopey brimham style topout - though probably better if you have a long reach

Really nice climbing with a slightly worrying rounded mantle top out. marred only by the green-ness of the lower section which also gave funnily enough some of the best climbing.

A bit green and mossy at the start, but still good moves over the initial bulge, with a bold finish up the final arete
