Rockfax Description
An easily-missed pitch that is well worth seeking out. Start at a crack on the front of the buttress just right of some ivy.
25m. Climb the crack and continue up a thinner one on the right to below the overhang - the 'Big Top'. Move right below it and climb a ramp to easy ground and a belay. There are a number of possible variations on the lower section of the route. © Rockfax

Second Trad Lead, slightly more interesting than Alison's rib, bomber protection, and the best anchor I've set up so far. Took a slightly harder route than suggested by following a lay back finger crack rather than traversing around it.
