Rockfax Description
22m. Worthwhile at the grade but tough. Start under a tall niche just left of the arete of the buttress. Climb cracks to and through the niche to reach a small ledge, then continue until a tricky move can be made rightwards into the base of a widening crack. Gird your loins and set about it to reach a substantial tree belay. © Rockfax

βeta: Hmmm. This is probably not 4b, but there are about 2 holds on the whole route which are in any way reassuring and the gear is similarly terrifying. I didn't think this was any good at all.

Steph Sly 14 May Lead I really enjoyed this climb. Third climb of the day and was feeling more comfortable with the style of climbing. Felt well protected. I used a lot of cams so may have been trickier to place gear if I hadn't taken so many up.
