Rockfax Description
The rib at the change in angle of the crag is a stunning line. Climb a tricky short steep corner to a ledge. Traverse up leftwards to the rib and move around it to a ledge (top of the wide crack of Tottering Tortoise). Move up the wall then back onto the arete which leads to a ledge. Continue left of a tree to finish up easier ground. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start on shelf to right of crags lower corner. Pull up short corner to base of slab. Climb up and trend left to top of pinnacle. Move up right and gain the finely situated arete. Climb up to slabby finish passing left of a holly.
