Rockfax Description
18m. Worthwhile and interesting, though not hugely direct. From the foot of the buttress, head up with a jig right to pass the bulge then continue on rounded holds before heading left under the mushroom to reach the ledge and a stance. The crack leads up and left to join the final section of Great Chimney. © Rockfax

longer than guidebook suggests! used a 50m half rope doubled up and a small amount of moving together was required.

not really too challenging but a good warm up climb after a long walk in.
