Rockfax Description
A well-positioned main pitch. Start on the far left ledge.
1) 4b, 12m. Head up the leftwards-trending line of weakness and pull up over a bulge. Continue on up to a conspicuous tree and a belay ledge. Poorly protected.
2) 5a, 20m. Move up to gain the scoop/groove and follow it to a small overlap. Step left to a crack right of the rib and climb it to easier ground. A low angled rib leads to the top. © Rockfax
