Rockfax Description
Classic. Start up Brown's Crack, but follow ramps left and tackle the crucial crack that splits the bulge. Well protected but quite taxing, it may be the best VS on the crag, who knows? © Rockfax

βeta: Found this quite easy actually, loads of gear and just layback the top crack, great route though, but no more then 4c.

βeta: A great little route with a nicely positioned crux that's steep but very well protected and with excellent holds. I thought only 4c but definitely 3 stars.

βeta: One of the best VS ive done, easy going lower down then comes the bulge, easily protected but requires a bold approach...dont forget to take in the view across ladybower...joy

βeta: The final steep crack can be desperate without the 'right' approach!
