Rockfax Description
A burly pitch that follows a jamming crack up the corner on the left of the square-cut buttress that is perched above a ledge. Start by scrambling to the ledge and a belay under the corner.
Enter the corner strenuously and jam away up the crack to a rightward exit near the top. © Rockfax

Wow, brutal. You really have to fight your way up this one.

Nearly messed this up - OK if you climb it the right way but it is quite burly.

prev 2nd P after backing off. Felt fine today, tho had a thick moment or three before finding the decent hold for the finish round the arete. Luke back and footed the final groove, which was cool.. didn't occur to me at all.

Failed the lead on this earlier in the month and really struggled as second at that attempt. Climbed it cleanly and under control this time. Strenuous around the crux, but easy to rest hands free afterwards

A short and pumpy climb.
