Rockfax Description
Start from a block to the right of the base of the gully. Go up the face to harder moves at half-height (holds to the right) which lead to a scary mantelshelf and then easier ground. Despite what you might expect from the grade, it is unprotected. © Rockfax

βeta: It definitely isn't 5b but it does feel very commiting. I got my hands on the ledge looked down and thought "what the **** am I doing here!?! Fortunatley it's easy from there.
