Gneiss Gnome* HS 4a
[a gneiss route, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
The right-leaning corner gives an interesting climb up a strong line. Gulls nest here early in the season. Start at a crack which leads up to the corner proper.
Climb the crack to the overhanging corner and climb it to a belay on the left at a shoulder. © ROCKFAX

Variation on the start by taking line to the right (in the gallery?) rather than quartz choss steps, ended up being quite bold until back on route. Enjoyable top pitch too.

sam ran it out boldly after trying a more challenging start further right.
