Rockfax Description
A delicate, easier route that is justifiably popular. Start below the big groove of Barbarian.
1) 10m. Scramble up to the tree below the slab as for the Barbarian approach.
2) 4b, 15m. Climb up and rightwards along a line of weakness that runs across the slab to a block at the right edge. Move round this to a tree belay at the base of the upper corner.
3) 4c, 30m. Climb the initial corner to a ledge then commit to its continuation to reach a sloping ledge below vegetation. Traverse right across the wall to groove and right again to a crack which leads to the top. © Rockfax

Rob P1, head strait up between trees to right side slab, trending up & right to belay point at tree. Plenty of room before P2 Carl, step up and climb over large flake. Great crack with plenty of opportunity to place gear, keep feet & hands close together until top of crack. Traverse right at top of crack, however BEWARE of large loose flake!!!!! (DO NOT hold on or place gear in this area), there is opportunity to step downwards to great foot placement, then reach across for an opportunity to place gear again. Trend right and upwards to crack, climb this before reaching around and stepping on to large ledge. Finish by heading up towards large rock.

Played some games like seconding the 4th pitch and not using my hands(removing a gear was a laugh). Headtorches would have been good.
