Rockfax Description
Tough crack climbing up a striking line. Start at a rib down and left of the prominent crack of the route's second pitch.
1) 4c, 14m. Climb up the rib and then head out left to a belay below the striking crack.
2) 4c, 22m. Climb the corner to gain the crack and jam up it to a belay on the ledge above.
3) 13m. Easier ground leads to a belay below and to the left of an overhanging crack.
4) 4c, 17m. Climb carefully up to the overhang (some poor rock). Make some powerful pulls to pass the overhang and continue up the crack above it to the top. © Rockfax

Martin Bennett 9 Jul, 2013 - A very good climb though some of the rock is worrying. Top of the grade I'd say.

Peter Metcalfe 23 Jul, 2006 AltLd A superb route: sustained, continually interesting and taking a fine natural line. Shaw lead first two guidebook pitches, I lead last two.
