12m. Trend out right to a flake, follow this then more broken rock towards the bulges. A short loop left, then right, is needed to get onto the good ledge below these. Finish out right easily. © ROCKFAX

Had to drop one of the ropes as it got jammed. Horrendous rope drag on the other as well. Nice moves around the flake but otherwise a rather indistinct and meandering line.

An exciting move to reach the flake but it's all on good holds, really nice moves. I then got the rope jammed behind the flake! Richard removed my first nut so Helen could clear it, and I's alrady removed the second to improve the line of the rope, which left me with just one dodgy nut to protect the next few moves! In spite of that it's a really nice climb, thoroughly enjoyed it.
