SMC Description
30m. At the left end of the large slab is a thin crack-line. Climb rightwards up to this and follow it to a ledge (possible belay), move left, then pull over a bulge (crux) to gain and climb a left-facing corner. © SMC

UKC Logbook Description
Climb Easily up the slightly mossy Slab. Move left on the large ledge and then up the obvious good left facing corner pitch to the top.

Abseil from baby birch (!) or walk down easy way (to left).

Lead in two pitches. After the corner, the slabby rock (as described in the guidebook) never materialised...

Good fun at the grade, especially the first pitch. Climbed the first pitch again during another visit later in the week to help two friends (two shorties) make the 1st move from the 1st belay, then downclimbed back to the ground.

So the first section felt harder than Diff - may have been off route a bit. Last section around the corner was fine.

HD, reckon its worth a star although setting up a belay up top requires some heather hacking to find some rock!

Actually a good little climb with nice moves and good gear, maybe even worth a star with a bit of a clean up on the slab pitch. The open corner was probably the highlight
