22m. The left-leaning wide flake-crack is a steady lead, capped off with an airy finish. Start below the large flake-crack. 20m. Climb the flake-crack using the left wall more frequently as height is gained. Eventually the arete is reached from where a final pull up, either on the left or right, gains a good belay ledge. © ROCKFAX
The left leaning wide flake-crack is a steady lead, capped off with an airy finish. Start, obviously, below the wide flake-crack. Climb the flake-crack using the left wall more frequently higher up. Eventually the arete is reached and the top can be gained from the left or right with a final pull.

Great climb, amazing day, and watched by an inquisitive seal to boot! Enjoyed locating the crag, and the excitement of an uncertain abseil in to the route!!
