46m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A stunning finish for either Brys or Asahel. Move up the slab towards the overhang to a groove that leads steeply right past a stone eagle/spike. Move up the slab and then make another wild traverse out onto the rib on the right and follow this to the top. © Rockfax

George Geo 14 Jul, 2018 2nd O/S Lead by CC as one long pitch and seconded by me. Struggled getting on to the stone eagle as missed a foot hold low in the corner but when I found the foot hold it was an amazing traverse across and over. Pay attention to rope work of doing as one long pitch as a fall at the traverse could mean a large swing!
