Rockfax Description
Once considered the classic of the crag. From a useful tree at the toe of the buttress climb a flake then move across and right to a groove. Up this to a crucial exposed step out left to finish. © ROCKFAX

Did the VS 4C finnish. Well worth doing. Quite green at the bottom and clealy not well traveled but a fantastic route and the overhanging finish is outstanding. I imagine it would be worthy of 3 starts if it saw a bit more traffic.
