Rockfax Description
A classic outing up the tallest buttress on the cliff and a good spot to practice multi-pitch climbing. Start left of the buttress, on a block amongst grassy ledges. Traverse right along the break to the front face and climb polished holds to the notch by the pinnacle (a quick ascent is the norm) and a stance on a big boulder. A more direct version up the flake-crack is an option as is a green stomach-traverse from the base of Central Chimney. Continue up the centre of the slab to steeper ground then traverse left at one of two levels to a short jamming crack - the final section of Black Crack. © Rockfax
