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!

The "green" trouser legs proved to be hard and scary. Bold climbing until your stood on the crotch, hard! Followed by a delicate traverse and awkward finish :
