UKC

12m.

Rockfax Description
A very good climb that follows a trio of right-facing corners past two substantial sets of overhangs. There is an unlikely looking spot for a rest below the upper overhang. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The groove system through the roofs at the LH end of the crag. Pull over the top roof rightwards to jugs which lead up left to the lower-off. Excellent climbing.

βeta: Brilliant route*** you can still fall off near the top. There's a left hand side-pull/pinch just before a bigish throw to a jug (half way up the route).

βeta: Great route. Got it on my second attempt. Whilst resting before the crux look for the undercling at the back of the roof. Go out right and reach for the jug above. After that, it’s jugs all the way to the anchor.

βeta: From the ledge you need to go out right to the good hold, match above on a good jug and then climb directly upwards until you are stable and you can step back left to the rings.

βeta: Doesn't follow the line through the overlap as shown on the topo, goes right instead!
