Rockfax Description
A fine climb up the left-hand side of the smoother face. Exiting the niche at the start is tricky, especially for the short, and gives access to the fine sustained climbing above. From the oak tree in the niche, finish up the arete on the right or the groove on the left. © Rockfax
