Rockfax Description
A good direct line on The Sump. Climb up broken rocks to reach a corner which is followed on reasonable holds (some are friable!) to gain the ramp. Finish up the steep corner above. © Rockfax

Tricky little number with a bold feel in parts. Probably safer in 2 pitches for leader and 2nd, due to rope drag and stretch!
