Rockfax Description
A well-positioned pitch on good rock and with a spectacular finish along the crest of the North Ridge. Start at the third jammed-boulder in from the mouth of the narrow zawn between the South and North Ridges.
1) 4a, 20m. Move straight up the wall to meet a short crack on the right and then move up to the larger right-trending crack above. Move right along the crack and climb direct to the top of the fin and belay.
2) 40m. Scramble along the ridge to its high point and then either continue to the tower or abseil from metal stakes. © Rockfax

Great fun if a bit sustained towards the top. An excellent first outing on culm.

Very nice rock, no gear first few meters. Very strong wind made the ridge exciting. Marina lead the ridge. Ropes got stuck in the stake after belaying, had to leave a sling and mallion.

Very short of gear in the first 20 feet or so - guess I was off route. Otherwise steady and pleasant. Exit up the ridge a bit bold in places, stepping onto barely secured slabs

60ft climb. Great weather and very enjoyable climb. Alpine style at the top.

Bold. Protection not great. Be very hard to down climb if you got scared, but apart from the exposure the moves are technically not hard.

Easy but pleasant enough climbing. If you stupidly don't read the guidebook properly and trend leftwards from the 3rd boulder in (instead of up and right) you'll find that there's no gear for quite a long way and some of the holds are nice and rattly!

Dad and Riff. Getting along the ridge and back to "main land" was more hair rasing than the climb! Watch your step
