Rockfax Description
An Avon favourite, featuring fine climbing, protection and positions. Start on a belay ledge up and right from the larger belay ledge at the base of The Corpse.
Step up to a smaller ledge on the right. Follow the line of weakness left of the blunt right-hand arete to a peg underneath a shattered overhang, and pull over the overhang with care. Move up to another small overhang and move left past a peg, and then up and back right towards the arete. Take the thin crack to a final overlap and move left and up the final slab. Various tree belays. Walk off or abseil from the trees. © Rockfax
