Rockfax Description
Climb the main corner to the roof as for Horatio's Horror then traverse right, with a crucial foot change on a shiny 'button', to reach the base of the continuation crack. Up this to a ledge and an exit on the left on huge holds. © Rockfax

Found the polished button and I suppose for the uninitiated the foot swap here that the guide book talks about would work, I however found it much easier to use a left footed smear and simply swing my right foot up and rock up onto the awaiting giant foot hold. The traverse is lovely and flowing and felt quite easy, you do however end up in a wonderfully exposed position and the climbing doesn't really relent until the very top! Brilliant climb worth all the 3 stars. Quality

First ever lead, frosty, cold. Struggled with gear but was encouraged to move on. Fell, gear ripped and decked on boulders. Memorable. Returned a few years later to find it was a piece of piss. Moral: cut your teeth on a VDiff!
