Rockfax Description
Excellent rock and climbing but with spaced protection. Start left of a thin crack that runs up to meet two rusty pegs in the centre of the slab - Oiseaux.
Climb directly up the blank slab, which gradually increases in difficulty, to finish directly below the abseil point. There are a couple of good wire placements along the way that need a bit of searching out. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description

Stanners 23 Jul, 2018 2nd O/S with good skills and a healthy rack of microwires/micro cams this is probably still E1 5a even without the two pegs. But for an E1 leader this is probably pretty sketch now the pegs are long gone. Whole crag needs updating due to vanishing pegs

alan moore ??, 1996 - Crazy streak and Walking on the moon are both a bit easier than Wazoo and Lead boots. Though not by much. A great spot.
