Rockfax Description
A fierce and fingery wall climb that eases with height. Avoid contact with the rail on Gully Wall and, if you're feeling strong, then try the smooth footless direct finish, 6c+ 6a, that requires one hell of a mantel and is much harder for the short. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the pocketed wall right of the Pig's Nose arete without using the breaks running right from the aforementioned route. Finish straight up the top block.

Fell off trying to go straight up. Then did it ground up going to the left which was easier on larger holds.

Liked very much the slab, with a dyno from the pocket to the break. Second half is less interesting, though.

Ground up. used dyno from small pockets, then did it again using the small pockets slightly left (much easier). I think 6a if you go straight up

Rock bone dry following a few dry days, and really windy. Nearly popped on strenuous finger traverse but crux short lived. 1995 CC guide shows it as 6a.

Technical and Tough. Some good moves needed on the slab section and you find yourself using the same hold in different positions to make it work. A tough top out though. Not a lot to get hod of but really good.
