Rockfax Description
160m. An excellent route featuring some fantastic climbing.
1) 5b. There are three ways of getting to the belay at the top of this pitch; either left (6a), right (5c) or middle (5b). The middle is the traditional way but all of them offer good slab climbing.
2) 5a, 3) 3c.
4) 5c. A fantastic sustained pitch but one which requires careful rope management in order to avoid drag. 5) 4b.
Descent - It is possible to abseil the route but this involves quite awkward diagonal abseils and possibly some downclimbing. A better option is to scramble up easily to the top of the crag and descend an equipped line down the gully (see photo). © Rockfax

JimboWizbo 26 Jun, 2016 AltLd Complete nightmare. You are committed once you ab in, and you find that the bolts (small, old and rusted) are about 10 m apart and spaced such that you have to do difficult friction climbing crux moves in order to finish the last 2 m to the next bolt. We only got off the crag through a combination of solo scrambling and bushwacking searching for the easiest line up. Avoid
