Rockfax Description
A great pitch. Start by some cracks below and left of a clean wall split by a leaning crack. Head up the cracks to a ledge and arrange some protection. Teeter rightwards to a peg by your feet. A worrying move leads to the crack which is followed on good holds to a final tricky bit. Belay on a spike and some poor gear high up. To descend, head up slightly to an easy traverse-line off right into the main gully. © Rockfax

Butel 23 Apr Lead O/S Great little route on good rock. Traverse is a bit bold as there is no peg anymore. Last move is pretty hard but just go for it to a good hold.

ksjs 31 May, 2009 Lead dog disappointing: fell dynoing for the key hold (note: no dyno required, just good footwork). this was E2 5c previously but it is now a fair E3. i wouldnt normally warm up on E3 but as a result of it being graded E2 5c before i thought it would be straightforward - bad choice. the moves above the peg are fine but do feel a bit tenuous. exiting the crack felt unobvious but when i decided what to do it was correct, i just didnt catch the hold correctly. got it on next attempt. very worthwhile.
