Rockfax Description
8m. The right-hand edge of the gully is pleasant enough. Starting up the gully to avoid the bulges is quite a bit easier. © Rockfax

The only worth movements are in the first 2mts when you are unprotected. Go around through the left gully, put some protection, come back down and enjoy it.

Ah, the shame. :( A really unpleasant start that wasn't what I expected in my 'warm up climb'. I'm not surprised the direct start gets HS in the new book.

Definitely a Mod if you start from in the gully to the left. Used as a quick warm up for Rib Wall.
