Rockfax Description
The middle of the three long corners on this side of the buttress. Good climbing, but often wet. Starting up the first pitch of Scorpio makes the route a worthwhile VS. Start by scrambling up to a belay below the large corner.
1) 5a, 20m. Climb the crack and belay on the pedestal on the right.
2) 4c, 15m. Move back left into the crack and climb it to a stance in the developing corner.
3) 4b, 25m. Continue more easily up the corner/crack to the top and a belay on the Eastern Terrace. © Rockfax

Pete_Frost 6 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S A bit damp and grubby even after a prolonged dry spell! P1 needed a bit of care to protect because the cracks didn't fit the nuts! The most striking corner of the three. Led P1 & 2. P3 felt the most enjoyable.
