Rockfax Description
18m. The wide and steep zigzag fissure doesn't do you any favours. Swing into the crack from the right and climb it steeply often passing an in-situ nest. Leaving the cave is the crux. © Rockfax

A Classic,old-school VS. The lichen, greenery and guano sort of added to the character of the pitch. Well worth 3 stars.

Covered in bird droppings and owl pellets. Left something to be desired.

FANTASTIC, a wicked crux leaving the cave (be careful of a detached block in the cave), what a setting and a view with the crag to ourselves :D
