Rockfax Description
Another good route with pleasant climbing. Climb a rib behind an oak tree to gain a rightward-facing groove. Step right across easier ground and forge on into the steep upper groove to finish. © Rockfax

dewieh 27 Aug, 2017 Lead dnf Shit protection and a lot of loose rock. Fell above the ledge and hit the ledge, fracturing my ankle. Then fell off the ledge and was finally caught by the gear, inadvertently pulling a muscle in my back in the process due to the harness. Lowered down by Rory, where we called Mountain Rescue to come and take me off the crag and to an ambulance. When I fell, I fell directly down as opposed to jumping away from the crag so I fell onto the ledge on my feet. Should have jumped outwards, very counter intuitive but it would have saved my feet. Live and learn! Will have to come back and top rope it once I've recovered.
