Rockfax Description
A challenging pitch that takes on the centre of the slab at its highest. Spaced protection. Climb to a block just above the vegetated break and then climb the slab on the left boldly to a crack in a scoop. Follow the crack until a line of holds leads leftwards to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The best route on the crag and a classic at the grade. Protection is good if looked for and is only spaced for a very short distance.

skinne 11 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Yeah, hmm... The climbing was right around Severe, but where is all this good gear? Despite a comprehensive rack, and years of trad experience, I struggled to find anything above the first break for a looong time except for a poor cam and the worst hex I've ever placed. I wouldn't expect ground-fall potential on a Severe, and not more than once! I couldn't have been off-route as it just goes directly for the top, hey...
