Rockfax Description
18m. The original and best? A ramp on the lower tier leads to a heather cornice and belay on the ledge. Gain the slab with difficulty then pass the big pocket and then the notch in the roof. © Rockfax

ebf 10 Apr, 2016 2nd O/S From the ledge (the bottom is not worthwhile). Paul S lead it, slipped off the bottom move to the pad but then went back on and finished in style. Really, only the bottom couple of moves are hard, but it's very bold all the way up. Paul found a friend 0 to the left of the notch which might hold body weight that's about it! There's a sneaky nut 1 on the left to protect the belayer.
