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

Thin crux but mostly steady. Nice aspect

Liz lead 1st pitch, which she did not enjoy, and I got the best pitch.

Led P1, definitely makes it an adventure going ground up. Felt unsure of the way even though we were in route. Probably harder than 4b. Paul led P2 very slickly. Lovely pitch.

Nice line. Abseiled in for top pitch. A few tricky moves in the middle of the crack

Pinguville 14/Jun/15 Lead O/S

ab in for the p2 , really enjoy'd it good climbing some fragile and technical moves and not as hard as i thought it would be , mostly due to great protection ! over too soon !

P2 only, worth the ab in. Great moments as the sun peaked out under the gloomy Welsh sky. Proper "fly on the wall" feeling.

The first pitch is really fun - great value hand traverse and a shale wall that is solid and well featured. I led P2 which is well protected and straightforward - if you go to the right of the ledge and ignore the first thin crack.

Lead P2. Great constrast moving from the classic slab to the strange boulder top out move.
