Rockfax Description
One of the classics of the crag, although protection could be better. From the grass ledge climb the groove to its end then step left and take the continuation to the terrace and a belay. Nice! © Rockfax

βeta: The previous comments about this being well protected are bollocks. Any gear is too low down to be useful. Basically a solo.
