Rockfax Description
The square-cut hanging corner on the left side of the cave is a tough mission, the corner itself being especially technical. Start at the tree on the left edge of the cave.
Climb the wall just left of the tree until below the overhang. Now go left passing a thread and move up to gain a small ledge at the base of the corner. Difficult technical bridging up the corner is followed by a hard move left to gain a good hold. Continue traversing to a ledge and abseil station. © Rockfax

The protection pegs were in a bad state some years ago. The climbing is hard too. E4?

gforce 27 Sep, 2008 Lead A brilliant climb. It is completely clean until after the crux when you traverse to the belay but it is easy at this point and the moss doesn't detract from the route at all. What's more it seems to me like it is perma-clean (unlike say Totalitarian which I would imagine needs some traffic every year to keep it clean-ish). Three pegs at bottom of corner (old belay?) in reasonable state and other gear available. No pegs higher up and gear is trickier. Go get on it!!
