Rockfax Description
A lovely little route up the attractive pillar left of the huge cave. The climbing is technically very easy but protection on the lower wall is a little sparse and the situation intimidating.
1) 20m. Gain the left-hand side of the slab and climb a flake (or make easier moves a little further left). Once above this section, enjoy the great moves and rock which lead to the break.
2) 20m. Escape upwards. There is an artificial top pitch which tackles the pillar right of the stance (HS 4b) but it isn't very good. © Rockfax

Emily 6 Aug, 2016 2nd O/S I planned to try and lead this but didn't fancy it looking up from the bottom - it looked slabby and gearless. Good decision as it was raining fairly heavily by the time Nick had finished leading, at which point I probably still would have been halfway up the first pitch. Not a bad climb though.
