Rockfax Description
Worthwhile with a steep start and inclined to be dirty after rain. Protection is well spaced. Begin 2m right of the gully and climb holey rock to the slab. Head right until below the overhangs, then back left to finish above Dovestone Gully. © Rockfax

One of the best easy routes Ive ever done, would be even better if it was bit cleaner.

Steep start is a bit of an understatement. A bit sparse on gear where you really want it.

Meandering, green and poorly protected IMO. Some nice easy moves though.
