Rockfax Description
Worthwhile, with some surprisingly good gear and moves.
Start on a large flat ledge beneath the big corner on the right of the crag.
Move up the left wall of the corner and step left over some vegetation to stand on a ledge and flake, good wires here. Make some pressing moves leftwards along the open groove past more good gear to a point where the groove fades and some good holds are encountered. Stand on the good holds and reach a broken flake up to the right and some handy small wires just to the left. Finish up right over slightly vegetated rock but on good holds. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the corner for a couple of metres before stepping left to a good crack. Move up and follow an intermittent flake line up leftwards to good holds a few metres below the top. Now climb straight up, passing a large flake, and top out carefully.

Good climbing, quite committing. Good protection in the first half, but a bit run out for the second.

carefull route reading required and even then its a sand bag at hvs 5a.a good e1 5b with a superb traverse left.the finish a bit up and right after traverse is nicer and adds more climbing

Great moves lower down and seem to miss the gear in the top half of the climb which made it a tad run out.

Started too far right and ended up too far left. Whoops. Felt more like E1 5b as a result.

Foot hold broke on the begining of the traverse, cheesegrater fall. Requires a lot of technique. Hard HVS.
