UKC

Climb the obvious crack on the left hand side of the slab. Sustained climbing, fairly technical for 4c. Well protected, but placing gear may be awkward.
If abseiling in from the top, anchored to the tree, take care as the rope can easily jam in the slots at the edge and prevent pulling through. Better to extend your master point to the edge if possible.

βeta: Really nice crack running up a steep slab. Ashame that it doesn’t run all the way to the top. Ended up multi-pitching it with a 2nd pitch (5metree) up the broken corner straight above it. Would recommend doing that if you’re looking for additional climbing. I’d put it around low end of severe.

βeta: We've done this route twice and both times when abseiling in with a double rope anchored off the tree, the rope has jammed and not pulled through properly. In future I would extend a master point to the edge and put the rope through that to minimise friction and the opportunity for jamming.

βeta: Big, well chalked up hold pulled off in the deeper crack. Suspect no change in grade but beware as there are others that don’t look well attached either.
