Rockfax Description
A poor start leads to a better top pitch. Climb (or avoid) the grassy cracks in the broken arete to the big ledge and a stance. Take the blocky continuation in the left wall which eases with height, beware the loose finish. Mild at the grade. © Rockfax

2/3 of the way up the first pitch there was a large piece of rock that jolted a little when I grabbed it, I avoided it as it sounded hollow and I was soloing, take care.

Mark Loveday 22/May/17 2nd dog

First climb of the day and not paying attention to where I was going so dropped down and did it again. Dogged.

Lead with midway belay (short rope!). More awkward on lower section (lots of heather) & more easy climbing on upper section, tho quite run out due to lots of loose rock to finish
