Rockfax Description
Climb to the overlap then use the flakes on the right to reach a traverse leading out left to a rest in the Monk's Groove. Move left and climb the crack until a rapid exit to easy ground can be made. The start is bold, the rest somewhat safer. © Rockfax

βeta: Enjoyed this. Soft for the grade I thought: the gear in the first half is maybe not super-solid but the climbing isn't too technical, and the crux on the upper wall is very safe. Wouldn't baulk at E1? Despite sounding wandering it's actually a good climb up a reasonably decent line; certainly worth a star.

βeta: It has two bomber runners, one before the lower crux and one before the traverse. Then there is the good runner in the groove of Mohammed, then I got 3 good runners in the crack. It's not that scary but the crack is pretty useless if you get too much gear in it and a reachy move by a small edge is needed.

lrandall 7 Apr, 2011 Lead O/S A soft touch E2 tho the crux is definately 5b, bloody move nearly spat me off! Serves me right for being complacent. Worth at least a star.
