Rockfax Description
A nice route with a fairly sound finish. Start at a steep wall below a big roof in the middle of the seaward face of Valkyrie Buttress.
1) 5a, 22m. Climb up the steep wall - towards the left side of the buttress - and pass the roof on its left. Bold climbing follows, up and slightly right, to a good belay ledge.
2) 4c, 18m. From the middle of the ledge, climb up leftwards to an overhung ledge and mantelshelf onto it. Continue straight up a good crack to a reasonable finish and belay on the fence posts. © Rockfax

Cheese Monkey 26 Sep, 2014 Lead O/S Felt more like 4c,5a. First pitch was great, didnt feel at all bold above the roof. Second pitch had some dodgy rock and gear, plus a delicate finish!

CurlyStevo 30 Aug, 2014 AltLd I lead pitch 2, probably went off route trying to weave a way up the most stable rock. A lot of the rock in this area is loose or atleast vibrates when hit / is wobbly. The top out is disgusting for all routes and I would advice a preplaced rope to aid the top out!
