Rockfax Description
Scramble to the base of the pillar and start at a crack behind the trees at the lowest point of the cliff.

2) N4+, 40m. Step onto the slab and traverse right (poor protection) to reach a black vein. Climb this to a ledge with spikes, then traverse right along ledges to a stance on a ledge beneath a short cracked wall.
3) N4+, 25m. Move left and climb cracks to a big ledge. Move left up a groove then left again onto a short slab leading to a large ledge. Flake belays.
4) N3, 25m. Trend left up a rising crack onto an easy slab and head up this to a large grassy ledge - nut belay.
5) N3, 25m. Following a rising traverse, heading for a large spike at the left edge of the buttress. Drop down and right (facing out) to a small grassy bay and a belay.
Descent - Abseil off a square spike (occasionally a sling in place) 40m into the gully and descend this, cutting back under the face to the starting place. © Rockfax
