Rockfax Description
An eliminate with some good climbing. Start as for Herod but move onto the wall on the left until forced back into Herod - all a bit pointless, but now things improve. Step left from the top of the crack and climb the wall and cracks direct to the top. © Rockfax

Charlie Low 24 Aug 2nd O/S Bloody hard for E2! Crux (going right of the big block near the bottom) felt about 6c sport difficulty, with no gear to protect decking out?

cem 31 Jul, 2015 Lead O/S As per the definitive guide (where it's E2 5c), I approached the top cracks and wall direct via the corner on the right hand side of the block of Brazen Buttress: a logical line that makes much better sense than the 'pointless' meandering of the Rockfax version.
