Rockfax Description
The twin cracks just left of the centre of the slab. Take care with the finish; a short (2m) tail from your abseil rope could prove useful here. © Rockfax

ManuelS 29 May, 2017 Lead O/S Great climb, especially the top section, except for the loose exit. Harder to get gear in on the middle part than it seems but still well protected.

malcolmphelps 29 May, 2017 Lead O/S Ab stakes were in good condition. Steady enjoyable 4c with plenty of gear for the first two-thirds. Top third is easier but lacks gear. Put a prussik on the abseil rope at the top and you may avoid having to pull on the ab to get out. Still a good route despite the character building finish!

ali.scott 27 May, 2017 Lead O/S Good climbing, and doesn't seem like it gets much traffic. Loose, dangerous topout some way above gear - guidebook isn't joking when it recommends dangling a rope over the edge! HVS seems right.

Becky E 8 Apr, 2012 2nd O/S Definitely no VS! HVS is about right. Set up ab rope (on stubby stake and gorse bushes) to protect the top-out (loose and chossy), but actually approached by abbing down the other slabs and scrambling round the bottom - which was good fun in its own right.
