Rockfax Description
20m. The long groove that bounds the left edge of the main buttress is especially worthwhile early in the season, before the ferns get a grip. Start up the left-hand corner, move right then follow it throughout. © Rockfax

Interesting start, worth the 4b it gets in the latest guide. Main groove is much better than it looks. Only the finish lets it down, as it peters out into the descent path. Would be improved by finishing up Heather Flake instead, at a slight increase in grade.

Found the start a bit tricky and the top a bit chossy but maybe I went too high, it wasn't really clear where you were meant to go at the top.
