Rockfax Description
14m. The wide crack in the upper wall is approached via the lower slab and some scruffy ledges. The crack itself is better. © Rockfax

Looked like a nice long VD that would keep us entertained for a while but everything up to the overhang was just a scramble. Overhang would give any climber a challenge if all they lead is VD/MS. Moves are all their, not much gear though.

Just a scramble up the low slopes (loose sandy) to the annoying overhang. Foothold slopes into the face as the overhang juts out. Crack too small to be of wedging use (for us fatties) and too wide for protection. There are footholds on the overhang but need to get feet up to them & didn't find many good handholds above.

obvious crux, get to OK handholds then move you feet till you are over.
