Rockfax Description
200m. One of the classics of the area, which is only slightly let down by the fact that the crux is the first move off the ground!
1) 6a. A cheeky pull on the bolt is an option many take.
2) 5b, 3) 5c, 4) 5c. It is possible to skip out the tricky moves at the start of pitch 4 by stepping right then coming back to the pillar higher up.
5) 5a. From here, scramble easily up a short grassy slope to reach the final two pitches.
6) 4a, 7) 3b. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Great first pitch. Crux of the route by the first bolt.
