Rockfax Description
The crack up the right-hand side of the face is the best VS hereabouts. Nice climbing, fine positions and good protection ensure its continued popularity and 'throshing' should not be necessary. The bore-hole is a cool feature. © Rockfax

A Steady VS 4c, made hard work of it but battled through, good ledges for feet when you need them.
