Rockfax Description
Start on the left wall of the cleft, at some polished footholds. Make delicate moves to better holds, swing left along the break to pass the arete, and climb the wide crack on the left. © Rockfax

βeta: Definately a VS 5b in the daylight. The 5b start is tricky but big handholds await you at the top. A very varied climb to be sure and quite comfortable even the hand traverse with 'poor' foot holds. In fact i was happy to hang on an elbow while a Friend 3.5 was lobbed up to me. My seconds both thoroughly enjoyed it too.

SuperLee1985 27 Aug, 2017 Lead O/S Nice route. Crux was after leaving the ground with some unprotected delicate and stretchy moves right to gain some decent holds and the break. I thought I'd end up going up before the corner but I traversed a bit to place gear and then ended up on a decent ledge. Traversing round the corner and beyond was exciting with good hand and poor feet and the last gear becoming quite far away. Eventually gained good feet and pulled into the crack and slung a chock. Not too bad above apart from rope drag. Hard to avoid bridging a foot on the back wall to rest.
