Rockfax Description
Absorbing climbing up the steep side wall that rises above the main slabs. It is reached by the first pitch of Faith.
1) 5c, 32m. Wander up to the steeper face and access a tiny quartz ledge. Teeter along this leftwards then climb the slab leftwards - bold and hard - past a porthole, with more hard moves to the sanctuary of a ledge.
2) 5b, 14m. Move left to a groove in the arete, which is followed to a small ledge. Finish up the wall. © Rockfax

BC 23 Jun Lead O/S Led as one pitch! Quality route and great technical moves. Quite bold. Seepage in the normal place. P1 was the best bit, and the top corner is also quite bold until thread jug. Mega

Rob Davies 19 Jul, 1983 Lead Seemed very hard, as I was expecting HVS- (Ron James). Long reach to finish, on which non-sticky rubber started to slide off. Last runner was a biggish cam - very odd to be carrying this for a slab climb.
