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

In one pitch. Slightly damp on the bottom moves but reasonable gear all the way. Finished up the R hand groove as quite loose in the top section.

I think the groove at the top the guide mentions is the left hand of the two corners. The hanging flake groove further left is 'phantom'. Probably climbed this route correctly years ago

nice easy climbing until the steep upper groove at the top to finish sandbaged a bit!? our guide topo showed route to go slighty right of the groove? but that seemed immposible , so after lots of messing around i pulled up and left where the is good gear placement and some holds , deffo felt harder than HS up there??! * guessing there is an alt' escape far to the right of the steep groove??

Led as one pitch. Finished direct above a good thread. Very committing, but nice moves. Think some loose rock has now gone making the finish harder - definitely not HS with this finish.
