Rockfax Description
A very polished local classic that is high in the grade, but does involve some fine climbing. Start at the corner right of the brown-stained wall.
Climb the right wall of the corner, with little gear at hand, to easier ground and good gear in the wider flakes midway up the corner. Steeper moves lead to the overhang where hard moves over it gain the tree. Move up leftwards and then finish direct past bolts. © Rockfax

βeta: Good initial bridging moves up the corner to well protected flake. Tricky overhang which requires a move to the left first, then rock over onto right secure foothold. Simple to the top
