Rockfax Description
Another great route. Start 3m up the broken corner. Use ledges to reach a left-slanting crack. Climb this to an easing. Finish directly up the steep headwall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The end of the slanting crack leads to the rest point on Barney Rubble. From this rest head up leftwards into the flowstone. Then up and over onto the ledges.
