Rockfax Description
The right-hand line is of similar quality. From the ledge, move up a short wall to gain a sentry-box. Exit left up a crack and then step back right above the niche. From here, head straight up to join Clutch on the ledge and climb this to the top. © Rockfax

Upper wall seemed hard, sentry box very easy by comparison with bommer jams, doubled up 50m rope extended by 240 sling from abseil station got us to the ledge with rope to spare so just lead on other half rope.

Didnt fancy the traverse above the sentry box to traversed onto clutch instead.

The moves left out of the sentry box and then the traverse back right look quite improbable at first but go very nicely

Abseiled in to this. Very awkward start and difficult moves out of the sentry box. Not obvious or easy crossing back over the top of the sentry box on the blank wall, more straightforward after that. Steep and exciting, gear was alright all the way.

Remember to position the ab ropes carefully so that they pull!! 1 x 50m would be just enough but 1 x 60m would be better. Sentry box was greasy and the exit cracks were dripping...decided to leave for another day....very unpleasant ab through the thorns followed by walk (by Phil!) back to the top to retrieve the ropes!!

Safe as houses but a battle to leave the sentry box. Excellent climbing above.

Totally brilliant climbing. A real hidden gem which justifies the hassle of getting to it.
