Rockfax Description
16m. A fine climb with great positions and low in the grade. Follow the cracks in the right-hand side of the side wall until they end then move out right onto the arete for a classic finish.
The Direct Finish is just a little harder. © Rockfax

I nearly blew it! I had to climb back to a ledge several times to shake about and get my inexperienced leading head back. I was really pleased I pushed through the jamming move to the more interesting slab above. A harsh lesson in jamming for the non jammer!
