Rockfax Description
12m. Follow the shallow groove to the bulges then make a tricky move to start a sustained traverse away to its right-hand end. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Step out of the groove and under the lip of the overhang, commit.... and you're there.

Really nice climb. Before the serious slab begins you can get pro in a pocket. Some surprisingly good holds in the undercut crag.

Amazing climbing with amazingly bad pro, mainly psychological gear probs wouldn't hold! Need more small cams.

This was the first recognised extreme in Northumberland and used to be E1 5b. A bold lead with the crux at the end - difficult to place gear in an out of sight crack before the hard move.
