Rockfax Description
The hairline crack in the rib to the right of Diocese's corner gives a fine pitch with a difficult initial wall. Start above a trench at the foot of the very thin crack.
1) 5c, 20m. Climb the thin, technical crack with difficulty to a ledge at 8m. Move left and follow the thin line up the wall right of the arete to a steep narrow corner. Follow the corner to a semi hanging stance just above.
2) 4c, 22m. Climb the cracks directly above the stance to a break and continue easily up cracks and blocks to ledges. Either belay here and then scramble off to the right or move left and continue easily for a further 15m to the top of the buttress. © Rockfax

Pleased to second this clean as it's a pretty technical series of moves at the start. Minimal gear so not gone on my list to lead!

First pitch was hard and bold, pleased I led the easier one. Definitely should have split the second pitch in two, the rope drag was horrendous and I couldn't hear anything from Sam.

Bold start, placed a side runner in bishops rib at the first ledge, was getting scared unsuccessfully trying to place micro wires (ground fall potential). Enjoyable and well protected climbing after the bold start
