Rockfax Description
An interesting route climbing to the large tree just below the top of the crag and left of the quarry's impressive headwall. Start on a ledge 8m up from the small tree at the base of the crag.
1) 4a, 21m. Climb to good gear in a thin slanting crack just to the right of a slanting rectangular block. Pull up the wall right of the block and step left to a broken corner/groove-system. Now head directly for the tree on steady ground via a good nut in the base of a borehole. Belay at the tree.
2) 6m. Climb up to the overhang behind the tree and pass it on the right. © Rockfax
