Rockfax Description
A long outing that builds to an exciting and exposed finale. Start at the base of a red stained corner.
1) 30m. Climb up the red-stained corner until a traverse right leads to another corner. Climb the corner and head leftwards to a ledge and belay next to a gully.
2) 23m. Move down the gully until it is possible to make an exposed traverse left underneath the capping overhang and continue to a good ledge beneath a short corner (possible belay). The short corner is hard but well-protected and leads to a ledge and easier ground to finish. © Rockfax

Backed off P2, didn't fancy the traverse - annoyed at myself as it was pretty straightforward in the end!

Did the first pitch and then went the wrong way to the top as the guidebook was hard to follow

think i was too high on the traverse, was right under the lip, good route anyway!

the second part under the overhang looks a lot harder than it actually is.

Led P2. Mike's first lead. Brilliant exposure traversing under the roof - like a tame version of Diocese.

I led middle pitch under roof - nice but impossible to communicate in the wind!

with Neil T, Alaric

Neil led pitches 1 and 3, Andy pitch 2. Poor communication on pitch 2.... wind.

backed off, no one fancied to commit to traverse, went to the pub instead.
