[Joe D high above thin gear shortly before requesting a top rope! It was E2 in those days..., 3 kb]The smooth left-hand side of the slabby wall provides the blank canvas for this intricate and bold pitch. The protection is very spaced. Start 6m right of the left edge of the slab on the left-hand side of an alcove. 26m. Pull through the low bulge onto the slab and move up to good holds. Now head up leftwards past intermittent cracks and finish via a move right and up on the best holds. © ROCKFAX
Start around 6m in from the left hand end of the slab at the left hand end of the alcove. Climb out of the alcove to good holds then follow the leftwards leading cracks to obvious larger pods and to the cracks end. Finish rightwards on good finger pockets to the obvious gully in the grass above.

Abbed down the line to get to the foot of the crag so can't really claim it as an onsight.
kingholmesy - Lead β - 2014 with Colin

Excellent climbing, will have to return to lead it. Need to check out the gear situation again as I was not paying attention.

Not bad for first lead of the season! Especially when you don't like slab climbing. Nice thin moves with just enough gear to make it safe but still exciting. Take lots of RPs and small wires and nothing else!
