Rockfax Description
The rounded rib to the right of the crack leads steeply to a ledge where a holly competes for space. Lean awkwardly left to access good lumpy holds on the final wall and a short layback to finish. © Rockfax

This is definitely not a 2-star route. There's only one good sequence - the move left and up the knobbly rib and crack, after which the climb is over. The earlier bit is all a bit unsatisfactory - some concentration needed, though never hard, and poor gear. Not a patch on routes like 'Neb Buttress' or 'The Happy Wanderer'.

Delightful route. Easy for HVS, well protected and not strenuous providing that footwork is good. Launching out onto the flake was delicious.

joe.91 24/Feb/11 Lead O/S

Top section was wet and bottom section damp, still a good route!
