Rockfax Description
A fine varied pitch up the south-facing side wall, with an interesting start followed by steep finger jamming to a teetering exit. Start up the slanting crack until a short traverse right leads to easy ground. Well-protected where you need it. © Rockfax

Failed on the hard move low down by the little flake. Weird move as it tries to throw you off.

Gear behind blocks didn't trust the blocks, couldn't do first hard move rested, pulled on gear then did the next move wrong and had to rest again, found the traverse ok. Probably won't rush back to try this one again.

Excellent, hard move low down, but traverse unexpectedly straight forward great end to a top day :)

Top move fel;t 5c - think I moved right a bit too high, involving a slightly blind slap at the limit of my reach. Got it though - the hold was good! Neil had traversed a bit lower on lead which was easier but missed out the top bit of gear by the jug at the top of the crac - so v run-out
