Rockfax Description
The corner in the centre of the main face is a splendid and challenging little pitch that has a complex start. Start as for Hostile Witness on a flat-topped block below the left end of the huge overhang in the centre of the main face.
Pull up rightwards to a crack in the face below the centre of the huge overhang and then traverse left with feet just above the low overhang to the base of the corner (this point can be gained by climbing direct as for the start of Hostile Witness at Severe 4a). Follow the corner to an overhang, then move left to the easier continuation and take this to the top past some saplings. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
50'. Gentle and well Protected. This version heads up and slightly right to below the overhang, then hand traverses back left into the main groove.
