Rockfax Description
12m. A green groove leads to a ledge on the right, step out left to another ledge and finish by the groove on the right. Disjointed but worth the effort and excitingly exposed towards the top. © Rockfax

Climbed fine up to first step out on to ledge, freaked out as didn't have any big gear. After finally plucking up the courage to hop on to the ledge, didn't have the balls to step out on to the second, so finished up Long Climb to the left!

Straight forward but enjoyable route - difficult to set up a belay at the top. Very little other than 2 not fantastic stakes.

For a VD it's a really nice climb. Quite long and high up it has got some great features. the only bad thing is the is nowhere for anchors at the top so we just had to use an old rusty steak (it held though). Beware of the loose stones all across the top of this crag.
