Crow's Nest Ordinary* HS 4b
[Looking across to the Tater Du area on the walk in., 1 kb]

Rockfax Description
A good way up the cliff that gradually increases in exposure as height is gained. Start on the left side of the cliff at a ramp that runs up below the cliff.
1) 25m. From the ramp, climb up easily to a gangway that also runs up leftwards and ends at a steep corner. Follow the gangway until a break in its right wall allows a slab above to be gained. Climb the slab rightwards to a ledge and belay.
2) 4b, 28m. Climb leftwards up into a depression on the arete of the face below the upper overhangs. Traverse left around the arete on good holds and then make an airy stride left to below a final steep wall which is climbed on good holds to the top. © ROCKFAX

Dave led pitch one which was on good firm rock,I unfortunately led pitch two which was a hideous lichen and guano encrusted chosse fest .I didn't like the look of it before we started,and I intend to be far more selective with the routes i climb from now on.
