Rockfax Description
22m. Bizarre in the extreme but oddly enjoyable too. Follow the chipped ladder to the top left edge of the face then exit round to the left via the well hidden final chipped holds. Photo opposite. © Rockfax

Just enough gear to make it enjoyably scary. Weird but worth it

No gear, neither of us fancied soloing it so we top roped it. Well worth while!

A little green and a little damp. An odd route.

Bold, but good chipped holds. Rope knots got annoyingly stuck pulling over to the top!
