Rockfax Description
Climb the crack on the left then move right and balance up the shallow groove. Pleasant but protection is lacking and it is often green. Finish up the prominent crack above. © Rockfax

What appeared to be a fairly tricky to start with was unlocked by some quality holds. Quite an exposed final couple of moves on the face

Stoff 30/May/16 AltLd

Led the first section but put off by the mid bold slab. Greg led from there. Moves turned out to be easier than I had feared. Perhaps next time full lead ?

Nice enough. Not much in the way of protection - 2 pieces over 20m but maybe more if I'd looked harder.

Really enjoyable straight forward climbing, pretty run out but still safe feeling, a little green and deserving more traffic

Pike 02/Sep/12 Lead O/S

Nothing tricky, very very soft for the grade, but probably deserves it for the lack of gear. A nice gentle romp. Watch out for the choss and friable rock over the top though.

A bit bold but good moves.

Mr. K 23/May/12 Lead O/S

Rock around one of the shallow rp placements at the base of the slap is loose. Climbing is steady though.

The slab midway feels bold, but good holds are where you need them, when you need them, so felt pretty comfortable.
