Rockfax Description
A long and interesting outing that requires a steady lead on the first pitch. Start at the base of the distinctive red-coloured dike on the left side of the main buttress.
1) 17m. Follow the dike to a ledge and belay on the descent rake.
2) 14m. From the landward side of the rake, climb the left-hand groove to the short red wall and a belay on a large ledge above it.
3) 15m. Move rightwards easily over large blocks to belay below a steep white wall.
4) 10m. Climb the open groove on surprisingly good holds to the top. © Rockfax

Led the excellent first and 3rd pitch. Big swell added to atmosphere

4 pitch route with the first pitch being the best and seems about right at HVD. The route follows a seam of red rock which is very interesting and very pleasant. The remainder of the climb is more like a scramble

OK first pitch, after that it was either pretty dull, or we got lost.
