Rockfax Description
The best route on this section of the cliff. The slick cracks and crozzly wall are used to gain the much easier left-to-right slanting ramp line. Follow the ramp to its end before finishing direct. © Rockfax

Got too pumped fiddling with gear low down. Lovely holds on the crozzly wall above.

Thin low down, fun and well protected once the hanging cgroove is reached.

The lower wall feels stiff for 5a, they felt as hard as those on Brutus (E2)!
