Rockfax Description
A worthwhile first pitch up the wall. Start by the oak tree at the point where a diagonal break meets the ground.

1) 20m. Move up onto the wall via a small overhang and climb for 7m until a traverse leftwards accesses better holds. Follow the good holds to the oak tree and belay on the terrace.
2) 20m. Walk right along the terrace before taking a slab and bulge to finish.
A variation on pitch one called Lower Traverse, S 4a heads left above the overhang to finish up West Crack © Rockfax

Great introduction to Pontesford after some tricky route finding with the 60's guidebook. Nice easy angled climbing on good rock in a spectacular location.

A beautiful day in November, the rocks cold and grey against a clear blue sky, the woods ablaze with autumn tints below us. I was reminded that it's not about grades or stars. A tribute to the day:

Climbed as one pitch, not really sure why you'd want to split it tbh. Didn't pick the path of least resistance at the bottom so it did feel rather hard for a VDiff, still nice though.
