Rockfax Description
A pleasant route that is low in the grade. About 20m left of the start of Yogi is another slab that faces southwest. Head up the path to the terrace and start just left of the large tree at the base.
1) 4b, 20m. Climb the slab from the toe of the buttress to gain twin cracks. Ascend these past small wires to an easing. Step right into the wide crack and climb to either belay on the tree, or at a ledge just above.
2) 4b, 20m. Head up the crack and then take the bold slab on the left until you can step right onto a heather terrace. Move right to below a steep crack and follow this up and slightly left before heading back right towards the top. © Rockfax

dan_waterston 18 Jul Lead O/S RML. Easiest VS I’ve done. Bomber gear & easy climbing. A little bit green at the bottom necessitating careful footwork. Cracks eat small wires.
