Rockfax Description
160m. An excellent route featuring some fantastic climbing.
1) 5b. There are three ways of getting to the belay at the top of this pitch; either left (6a), right (5c) or middle (5b). The middle is the traditional way but all of them offer good slab climbing.
2) 5a, 3) 3c.
4) 5c. A fantastic sustained pitch but one which requires careful rope management in order to avoid drag. 5) 4b.
Descent - It is possible to abseil the route but this involves quite awkward diagonal abseils and possibly some downclimbing. A better option is to scramble up easily to the top of the crag and descend an equipped line down the gully (see photo). © Rockfax
