Rockfax Description
A good little pitch that gives a gentle introduction to the climbing and atmosphere of the crag. Start behind a huge boulder below the mid-height overhang at the left side of the landward face of the cliff.
Move up the wall on good holds to the golden-coloured wall beneath the big overhang. Pass beneath the overhang leftwards to the rib, then climb to the top on slightly suspect rock. © Rockfax

Good climbing until you hit the green on top, had lots of drag as we only had a single rope

Rope gets a bit jammed in crack at edge of overhang. Ok climbing up to + underneath it to the exit, but chossy from a little further on.

Not a great route lots of loose looking rock and dubious gear coupled with (hard to avoid) rope drag and a horrible top out!!

Massive rope drag - more thought around overhang needed. Remember to protect that loose last section!

A great route, just a shame it's not longer and the traverse a bit harder. Despite my best efforts, rope drag at the top was massive!

Better rock than it looked. Careful ropework needed to avoid jamming rope, very loose top. Shame the climb ended so quickly.
