Rockfax Description
The classic of the wall, imposing but not too hard! Climb the yellowish groove to a ledge, step out left and climb the wall to the overhangs. Move right through the stacked notches to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: I got really good gear by stepping onto the face and dropping down a little to sling the big flake and there is great friend placement behind it too. Makes the moves to the peg a bit less daunting, Sinker nuts under the roof and thouroughly enjoyable.

βeta: umm side runners will protect (but maybe lower tehgrade)Is certainly challenging for the grade (compared to first fanal and many happy returns its neighbours) Its true leaving that ledge to come around the front face takes some guts, a thoroughly enjoyable route.

βeta: A wonderful route, leaving the comfort of the ledge is never easy.

βeta: Can't agree with Fiend. Start of Terra Cotta is 5a at most, and although there is no gear until you're on the first ledge it's not that high up is it.
