Rockfax Description
The mid-height, right-trending break gives a fine line and climbing. Care is required with some small hollow-sounding flakes when moving up at the end of the traverse. Climb Olympus to a ledge before traversing the break past a good horizontal spike to a narrow corner. Move up the corner to a good nut slot just above and finish up and right on good holds. © Rockfax

Will Hunt 24 Jul Lead O/S Very nearly pulled off a finishing hold. Started to move up past it and it peeled away from the crag. Prevented disaster just in time. Sean lifted it off in his hands when he came up on second. Grim – would have been serious stuff.
