Rockfax Description
18m. A fine climb in a dramatic setting. Trend left up up the face to a position on the tip of a flake. Step up and right delicately on a small polished foothold to the final widening crack. © Rockfax

Grey area 16 Aug, 2016 Lead O/S Long walk-in, definitely longer than the guide book says. But a really nice climb with loads of jugs and an interesting move across to the crack. Be prepared to be the centre of attention though from the punters - felt like climbing in a real amphitheatre and made even a bumbler like me feel cool :)
