Rockfax Description
The thin crack that runs up to the grassy col gives a pleasant pitch. Climb the crack to its end at a small overlap then step out right and head for the ridge and the abseil tree. © Rockfax

cem 1 Jun 2nd rpt The scramble up to the climbing proper has got a lot more vegetated over the years. A worthwhile route which needs more traffic.

Jonathan Hall 5 Aug, 2018 Lead Good route and fairly soft at E1 except the miserable brambles/nettles and rose gully at the start.

scottywakefield 26 Aug, 2017 Lead dnf The normal start is caked in moss, nettles and bramble. Above the stump its cleaner but still grassy and brambled where you want to either use holds or place gear.

Graeme Hammond 9 Aug, 2014 Lead O/S Good clean climbing after the first vegetated section. A good line and moves, deserves its 2nd star in the newest rockfax guide, but needs more traffic to keep clean. Pulled out fair bit of stuff on the main climb on abseil but need some prober tools to sort out the bottom bit.
