Rockfax Description
A popular direct on Sardine. Climb directly up from the start, up the short groove via hard moves to gain the ledge on Sardine. Follow this to a jug then move up right and climb past an overlap and a couple of well-spaced bolts. Finish up right. © Rockfax

FA. Steve Lewis 1984. The wobbly holds at the start survived for years before finally falling off in the winter of 1998/99.
