Rockfax Description
A long climb with some difficult and committing moves, plus a good covering of vegetation in places. Much more of an undertaking in wet conditions. Start at the base of the wall.
1) 25m. Gain a heather ledge/terrace and take the wide corner-crack until moves left reach a stance.
2) 27m. Move left to below a groove and make some difficult moves up it, and the corner above, to a stance and belay below a large overhang.
3) 24m. Move left and take a scoop to a vegetated ledge. From the left end of the ledge take a vegetated crack rightward to another large vegetated ledge. Belay on its right below a slab.
4) 26m. Climb the slabs heading leftwards midway to finish. © Rockfax

Cdubs 21 Apr Lead O/S Gorgeous setting, nice and dry. Good belay ledges but a little light on protection in places. The scramble at the top starts left of the 'large detached block' (Lake District Rock, FRCC 2015)and has some big moves for shorter people! Topped out and descended right down the walker's path

gavinwye 6 May, 2017 AltLd O/S Varied climbing bold at times. The final pitch ends on a wide grassy ledge with a belay on a spike. I didn't go this far finding a detached block - as mentioned in the guide - which I belayed from and we added an extra easy pitch/scramble to the spike. Keep left on pitch 5 to avoid a dirtier route. Lead 1,3,5
