Rockfax Description
The jagged right edge of the slab provides an airy and impressive pitch. Start close to the arete on the reverse side of the slab.
Move up steeply rightwards on good, but barnacle-encrusted holds and then pull up to gain the arete. Follow the stepped arete until a crack on the left near the top can be climbed to the summit. © Rockfax

Paul Sagar 2 Aug Lead O/S The top crack has been completely annexed by seagulls, who have turned it into a breeding gallery. Thin at the bottom of the arete with only microwires to protect (on a VS; naice). An OK warm up, I guess. Nah. Get in the fucking bin.

oscaig 26 May, 2012 Lead O/S Surprisingly varied climb. Gear where you need it but bit run-out in the easier lower stretch after the steep start. One tricky move left away from the arete to gain the crack near the top.
