Rockfax Description
The soaring corner-line on the right side of the face is a serious climb that requires lots of large gear on its top pitch, plus nerve and skill to deal with the rock and vegetation on the first. Start at an awkward stance directly beneath the corner reached via a scramble up a grassy ramp and chimney.
1) 5b, 26m. Pass a low bulge, peg, and continue to another bulge at 12m. Move around the bulge and climb the corner above past a peg to two more pegs. Continue up the corner passing a useful large cam-notch to a stance and belay where the corner lies back. Old pegs, nut and large cams.
2) 5a, 22m. The corner now starts to overhang but is well protected with large cams and nuts. A recent rockfall has left some loose material just before the top. © Rockfax

Take lots of medium and big cams.

Hmm... Traction control all the way. And a prickly exit and pricklier descent. Quality tradventure.

enjoyed this, very different the second peg in the first pitch is a joke.

Loose, wet, bold and vegetated. Excellent.

Definitely only 5b. Definitely E3! Pays to have a sense of humour when clipping the pegs. Make sure you take big runners.

Backed off the first pitch near the top. Nic top-roped to my high point then lead the rest.
