Rockfax Description
16m. The West Face classic. Climb into the hanging groove with difficulty (runners) then move right - with difficulty to access the crutch. Continue - still with difficulty to ledges and an escape right up the easier cracks. A Direct Start (from the right) is 5c. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
When clean a thoroughly enjoyable climb, although a bit stiff for the grade. In it's "usual" state it can feel like an E4!

allmag ??, 1988 Lead Was E1 when I led it which seemed about right. Semi-chimneying up the groove does it nicely. Over-graded at E2 especially if crash mat used.
