Rockfax Description
An awesome pitch tackling the thin crack and flake-line bounding the left side of the Nemesis Wall. Extremely sustained and varied climbing throughout. One of the original protection pegs is no longer in place and the pitch is now more strenuous because it's difficult to arrange alternative nut protection. Pull up to the base of the line and follow the crack steeply to where it curves and fades. A thin traverse left past a bolt eventually gains easier ground. The right-slanting crack above is still tricky. © Rockfax

Pretty hard and sustained. As Roisin said "I'm never seconding an e5 again". I could hardly grip anything by the time I got to the rest ledge... luckily the top crack is much easier than the guidebook makes out.

Second half of the crack is tricky.

Immaculate day to discover a new crag. As good as E5 as anywhere else in the country

Superb route. Not sure why the bolt is there - good small wires just below.
