Rockfax Description
An excellent route for beginners. Scratched holds lead up the slab to a possible stance on the left. The ridge on the right completes the outing. If in doubt, follow the polish! © Rockfax

Fun solo with sack as part of a lovely sunny November afternoon wander into the hills. Not a place to be injured when alone, so wore a lid and was super-careful !

Done in rucksacks as a way to the top to head home. I've put it as Second although I actually soloed most of the route while Charley was setting up his very dodgy "ropeknot in a vague hole" belay!! Lovely little route with some interesting moves near the top and very suspect topout for inexperienced climbers.

Wet day. Greasy rock.

First half was very straight forward, with fun but easy exposure but the guidebook didn't say anything about the second half being a stream. There was running water down the rock, and lots of vegetation which made the solo a bit scary!

Stuart Hurworth 07/Oct/10 Solo O/S

Easy climb though a lot more interesting as a solo. Feels quite exposed especially in high winds.

After a bivvy in the cave, with an amazing sunrise coming up over a sea of cloud that lapped against the foot of the cliff.
