Rockfax Description
Climb the arete which is awkward at the top. Possible belay on the ledge. Move up into a groove and step right into a slabby corner. Follow this to the top. There is a slightly harder direct variation which tackles the left edge of the overhang. © Rockfax

βeta: Found it a pleasant outing despite the fact that I couldn't get any pro in until at least 20ft up but from there on in everything is present. However, I then got to point where I couldn't get any higher unless I wanted to climb through lots of nettles and brambles face first. I then proceeded to sit on a ledge while I waited for my mate to nip round and throw a rope down so I could ab back down and retrieve my gear.

βeta: The top pitch could do with a better description. Just right of the groove is a small triangular roof (possible confusion?) right again is a square roof and presumably the route takes the flaky crack out of the left side before moving left to join the other line. This flaky crack looks loose but is more solid than it appears and has some good moves.

Simon Caldwell 24 Jul, 2016 Lead O/S Really good. Poorly protected first pitch. The terrace has recently been drastically cleaned (no vegetation is left at all). Took the right hand version of the middle section, which gave the hardest climbing of the route, maybe pushing 4c. Finished via the direct variation, which the new guide says is 4c, but was more like bold 4a/b
