Rockfax Description
The steep groove to the right of the pedestal is bridged and jammed to its top. Step up and make a short exposed swing out right to enter the final hanging corner. © Rockfax

Andy and Jonathan thought it was really green, maybe it was a bit, but not that bad. The traverse is pretty hard though.

with Jonathan French, Andy Crawley
spragglerocks 10/May/15 Lead O/S

Green, and it's not obvious which traverse line to do - the lower one feels harder than 4c in current conditions.

Think I may have taken the wrong route and hand traversed the lower break? Looked unlikely but was asured from someone with a guide that was were it went, looks like the higher break upon inspection. Regardless, traverse of lower break was great, real value for money. A character builder!

Greame led, quite green initial section which I found harder than Mike seemed to. Then the traverse out right is pretty wild, hands on good holds, and swing right foot up onto really green ledge and rock over, finish easily.
