Rockfax Description
Wild climbing that requires a determined approach - well protected. Start at an undercut crack/chimney above a block in the bay right of the base of the descent. Climb the crack in its entirety, with a welcome rest at 8m on the left. The second half of the crack has some useful holds on the left. Where the crack ends, finish up the much easier wall above, taking care with a couple of big semi-detached flakes. © Rockfax
