Rockfax Description
Another fine groove climb with technical climbing and superb positions. Start below the prominent groove on the right-hand side of the buttress.
1) 5a, 15m. Make a tricky move to gain the groove and climb it to where you can escape left below the top roof onto the top of a sloping ramp and belay.
2) 5b, 30m. Move left then back right and pull through the roof above into a fine groove. Bridge up this, moving right onto a rib then back left. Continue up the groove moving left around a roof onto easy ground. Tree belay above. Abseil off. © Rockfax

Followed up the first pitch and then led the second pitch. In a word: Terrifying! Just leaving the first belay was bad enough, and then the moves up the groove were really comitting on lead. I backed off several times and had a good talk to myself at the small rest at the bottom before I committed. As I made the move out of the groove I looked down and saw half my gear had pulled out of the marginal placements and was just dangling there.

Excellent recommendation from Richard. Sensational positions on P2 going up the initial groove and them moving out onto the arete, with a sting in the tail in the form of a technical bridging corner and swing round an arete. This is now E1 5b (Richard said there used to be a tree in the bridging corner which made things easier). Led P2.

led top half of p1 and p2. p2 was preeetty wet but i managed to battle through, tried to go out to the arete early and got scared, then reversed, got read the description, went up and did the real finish with a cheeky cut-loose! tough in the wet, crucial holds were out of use espeially on the first groove, and damp on the 2nd groove section. I'd say it was probably E1 in the dry, tough E1 maybe soft E2 in the wet, probably did a 5c move or two on the bottom groove.
