Rockfax Description
A great route and worth finding if the Upper Tier is busy. Abseil down near the left-hand side of the crag to a tree and ledge. From the ledge, move up through broken spikes on the left to another ledge. Step left to a good foothold and follow the thin crack up the slab for a couple of metres then step left again into a better crack. Follow this to a groove that leads to the top. © Rockfax

mattgrange 4 May Lead O/S Some good moves but not as 'out there' as the Rockfax photo makes it look. Had a ferret up the groove on the left but there is dubious gear behind a dodgy flake and not many holds so a fall would land you hard on the slab or worse. Concluded I was being silly and finished (correctly as it turned out) up the right hand groove.
