Rockfax Description
Lovely, balancy climbing that weaves its way up the steepest part of the face. Protection on the crux is from very small wires. Start 10m up the slope from the tree.
Climb to a peg at 12m and then directly to a thin diagonal break. Place some very small wires, then step up onto the break and balance left up a narrow ramp to double pegs. Move slightly left again and then climb up intricately past two more pegs to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start beneath the rh side of the slab, near an alcove like depression at the base of the slab. Climb up the wall to a peg at 20ft then continue direct to the rh side of a shallow ramp and 2 pegs at its end. Climb the slight bulge above to,and past a projecting peg to reach a large handhold above a further peg. Move up to a narrow white ledge and the top.

JoeCoxson 25 Nov, 2017 Lead O/S Well chuffed with this, first properly indisputable E3; not fairy cave soft grading, or a slate trad/ sport combo. Managed to back up a couple of the dodgy pegs, and the micros on the crux were quite reassuring really.
