Rockfax Description
16m. The original route of the wall. Climb up the flake and crack that form the right-hand side of the pedestal to reach its top. Move left then climb the roof on big holds to the final groove, which has some surprisingly tricky moves. The finish above is horrendous so take care. © Rockfax

Top section would benefit from a bit of a brush and topout slightly unnerving!

Matt lowered off the top after getting pumped, I then lead on his gear. Intimidating and harder than other 4Cs I've done, but brilliant. Top out is properly appalling though!

Layback at top of route. Dusty loose top out.

Positive holds and good gear but lots of loose mud on the tops for extra excitement.
