Rockfax Description
The deep-set corner is a fine line and has climbing to match. Start below the corner.
Climb the corner past a perched block to a rest. Increasingly-testing moves lead airily to the top. © Rockfax

Technical climbing on the second half. Would recommend practicing contortion before doing this route...

Lee first attempted to lead it with my belay, reaching a couple of metres below the top, but backed off, climbing down cleanly all the way, leaving the gear. I pulled the rope through and lead it, using the gear left.

Tough finish - especially if you're facing the wrong way and have your back against the left wall that has the (steep) finishing holds on it. Good dramatic route though. Take a big friend for the last few moves!

great climbing up the face, plenty of protection, all the holds are there. Good route to do on damp/ windy days as its sheltered.

Guide book rates this HVS. Climbing is good, tricky finish requiring some 'cornish' moves.
