Rockfax Description
A good line on good rock with a testing but well-protected crux. Start on a boulder at the base of a low, left-trending crack in the centre of the wall.
Follow the crack left to its end and move up to a narrow ledge. Climb the slim corner above and traverse left to the base of a small staggered corner. Follow the technical corner and steep flake above to a final short wall and the top. © Rockfax
