Rockfax Description
The jagged right edge of the slab provides an airy and impressive pitch. Start close to the arete on the reverse side of the slab.
Move up steeply rightwards on good, but barnacle-encrusted holds and then pull up to gain the arete. Follow the stepped arete until a crack on the left near the top can be climbed to the summit. © Rockfax

Very dirty at the top and the crack at the top is full of veg.

Interesting route-finding by David! Stayed on the right hand side of the arete most of the way. New route: "Not the Dame"?

Expecting it to "turn nasty", but the gear kept coming. Nice airy climbing. Not worth the fluttering heart in Rock Fax

Surprisingly varied climb. Gear where you need it but bit run-out in the easier lower stretch after the steep start. One tricky move left away from the arete to gain the crack near the top.
