Over Taken By Department 'C'** 6a
20m. A pleasant route up a narrow seam of emerald dolerite. A couple of tricky moves to surmount the last bulge lead to a thin slab and lower-off. © ROCKFAX
Start just left of Taken Over By Department 'C'. Climbs the thin green Dolerite Vein to gain the hanging slab, follow the hairline crack to the lower off . 8 Bolts lead the way.

top slab needs a brushing, like climbing up a house rocking over onto a 40 degree roof.
