An excellent pitch on superb rock. The start is a touch bold. 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 and from its left side boldly climb leftwards from a vertical borehole with a low peg at its base, to good holds. A stretch gains a jug and further good, but concealed holds that lead up and then leftwards to a junction with the ledge at the base of the upper corner of The Corpse. Now head rightwards up the pleasant narrow groove to easier ground and a big tree belay. © Rockfax
