Rockfax Description
A worthwhile pitch with a spectacular upper wall. Climb the lower buttress direct with a tough move past the overlap. Move up to the steep headwall and climb it on (mostly) good jugs, moving right near the top to a lower-off. © Rockfax

Lovely. Nice and steep after the start with nice moves right then up. First route of the cliffs and well impressed with the place. Totally unspoilt rock. Will be back for more of this.

A fantastic route, one of the best Sport lines at this grade I've done in the UK, 2* from me and without the ledge at 1/3 height would give it 3*. Steep, fun moves on excellent holds and a beautiful setting. Think it merits the 6a grade despite being listed at 5+ in the new Gower select guide ...wonder if that is an error as both UKC and SWMC wiki have this at 6a and Rockfax give it 6a+!
