UKC

300m, 8 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5c, 2) 5b, 3) 3a, 4) 5a, 5) 5b, 6) 5c, 7) 5b, 8) 5a. The first pitch is the hardest and the start is the crux, so get up this and you are good to go. Popular, queues are common in the high season. The last short pitch doesn't add much, unless you want to visit the summit and is tricky to get back down.
Descent - There is an abseil line to the right (looking out) - 2x50m ropes minimum © Rockfax
