Another excellent climb up the rounded right-hand edge of the pillar. There is a slightly harder direct version towards the top of the pitch - the easier version uses the crack on the right. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
The flaky crack on the right leads to the glaciated rib and a high crux, with thin moves out left. This can be avoided by the easy crack to the right, no gear, reducing the grade to an easier 6a, but this isn't really the route!

Colin smoked up it - without his chalkbag - the crux is a thin move - approaching 6b

Such a good line on amazing granite. Lead with Jack Southward

Disappointing. Photogenic but easy apart from one smeary move
Probably near 6a+ for the proper finish - magnificent!
Fun climb, though crux (direct finish) is much harder than rest and more like 6a+.
|Mark Bull||24/Oct/12||Lead O/S||
Tricky thin crux. The rest is easy if you take the RH option at the top (keeping L is F6a+).
|Smelly Fox||22/Oct/12||Lead O/S||
Better is you avoid the gully at the top.

Couldn't do the first slabby bit so used the rope. Higher up do you follow the obvious groove well to the right of the bolts? Or move left and follow the slab to the left? The former is more logical but a long way from the bolts so it's probably the latter. In which case it's extremely height dependent (can you reach the crack) and a bit of a non-line.

Very nice climbing.
|jonny taylor||29/Aug/11||Lead O/S||
6a+ variation towards the top felt like the natural line - a thought-provoking friction move.

|Graham Iles||14/Apr/10||Lead O/S|
Superb climb, committing moves for sure.
6a and fair - nice line with some thin moves
