Rockfax Description
A steep pitch that finishes up a well protected slim corner. Start on the upper ledge at the base of the descent down-climb/abseil. Move up right on to the stepped arete and climb this to below a left-facing, well-defined slim corner crack. Climb this with difficulty - well protected - to the top and stake belays well up the slope to the left. © Rockfax
