Located on a face about 12m L of shed wall.

Take the fine rising crack line that runs the entire height of the crag, passing a dead tree where the angle eases. The small tricky ramp above leads to a finishing mantleshelf onto a slightly sloping large ledge. Big cams protect, belay on trees and scramble off to the rear.

lazzaw 19 Jun, 2013 Lead dog Top tip - don't get a really good foot jam just below the tree then fall off to end up hanging upside down by your foot 'cos it hurts.

beardy mike 4 May, 2009 Lead O/S Nice climbing with a short but steep crux. Can't decide whether it warrants the grade or not as I am good at Jamming. The protection is excellent and you need nothing bigger than a friend 4. Would suggest VS 5a would be more appropriate as its harder than the file technically, but not sustained and very easy to protect well...
