Rockfax Description
A good pitch with a pleasant lower wall leading to a final steepening just right of the yew tree. A hard but excellent sequence on superb rock gains the lower-off. © Rockfax

Just the short hard bit at the top. Slopy footholds. Left hand wall crimp. Riight hand up and right for a side-pull. Good moves.

Got to the tiny pocket but couldn't see where to go till I sat on the rope. Nothing left for the move from the side pull so didn't finish. Very nice climbing!

The top was very sequency on small holds, and a hidden, hard to reach sidepull. Felt very hard for F6b+.

About 3 new lines since the old book so spent most of the time being confused. No idea what line it was really. Dropped the top
