Rockfax Description
A classic steep VS adventure that gives a great outing with acres of exposure.
1) 4c, 25m. Follow the prominent corner to a steepening. Climb steeply leftward to gain another corner which is climbed to a technical move left into a narrow corner. Bridge up this to gain the grassy ledge. Belay on the right.
2) 4b, 20m. Traverse up and left to gain an arete. Swing round this and climb the steep wall to access a wide crack which leads to the top. © Rockfax

Martin Brierley 30 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S ***WARNING*** A boulder I was stood on, just after the crux on pitch 1, decided to jump off the crag so there may be a decent hold missing, I shouted lots of below etc. The only other people we knew were up there were already high on amphitheatre buttress, and they were OK. I led this as one pitch. The first pitch would be rather hard if you couldn't hand jam. As I was approaching the crux I looked outwards and discovered that we were in a white out. Thoroughly enjoyable, especially the face of my French second as he dealt with the exposure and the interesting climbing.
