Rockfax Description
A mix of trad and bolts. Climb up to a ledge below a groove. A long reach and hard pull to the first bolt gain the wall above. Sustained climbing then leads past two more bolts to a lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Groove just left of the tunnel, 3 bolts to a lower off.

Paul Sagar 10 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S It’s not really a trad climb anymore - the rebolting job makes it a run out but easy sport climb (maybe 6a at most?). Only protection you need to place is in the flake halfway to the first bolt. Nice enough but nothing to write home about.
