Rockfax Description
Steep and varied climbing with good protection. Start at the base of a clean, narrow corner. Climb the narrow corner to the overhang and layback steeply up rightwards to good holds. Follow a finger-crack left to its end and step onto a ledge on the right. Move up and left to the bottom of a final corner that leads to the top. © Rockfax

Very nice climb, full of good protection. Quite windy though. Francesca got stopped by the crux, which I think is more of a 5a than a 4c.

Dave attempted to lead but backed off at the crux, and so I took over. I seconded it once 2(?) years ago.
