Rockfax Description
A popular pitch based on the shallow arete on the right side of the main face. Start 4m up the broken corner. Climb the wall left of the arete on good blobs to a small finger pocket. Traverse awkwardly right to the easier-angled side of the shallow arete and finish up the still interesting walls. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start half way up ramp on right. Line of staples up scoop to perplexing moves right around arete finish up wall to lower off
