Rockfax Description
A fine pitch that has a reachy exit - high in the grade. Start just left of the corner that drops down from the upper approach-ledge.
Climb the wall to a widening crack and follow this on excellent holds to a point level with a wide flake-crack on the right wall. Swing out right along the flake to below a black blob on the wall above. Step up onto the blob and make a crucial stretch for a good hold on the finishing ledge. Scramble off right. © Rockfax
