Rockfax Description
Climb the blocky pillar and finish up the thin left-slanting flake in the final tower. Decent moves but a bit of an eliminate. © Rockfax

A lovely, sexy route! If you climb strictly on buttress it deserves 5a, as per Stanage Definitive guide. Drop grade to 4b if you put feet/hands off route! ;-)

Second trad lead. Freezing snow/wind and dark came in as I faffed trying to sling a thread near the top that was too narrow to put my immobile frozen sausage fingers in. Ended up giving up and topping the climb a good 4m above my gear. Still had fun though!

Green, slimy and massively contrived. If you step onto the stack on the right it's definitely not VS. Don't bother wasting your time.

Got cold, got cross, moved right into the cracks rather than faff about trying to work out the short persons version.
