Rockfax Description
A strong line, good gear, and plenty of variety make this a worthwhile and popular route. Start on a belay ledge beneath a groove. Move easily up the wall right of the streaked groove and then step left to a small corner at 5m. Take the corner past a peg, and the relatively bold wall above on good holds to a ledge at the base of a right-leaning corner, where there are some more pegs. Climb the corner to a difficult and polished exit onto a ledge. Finish up easier rock to a large tree at the top of the crag. © Rockfax
