Rockfax Description
A pleasant counter to the ever-popular Powder Monkey Parade. From atop the chock, head left to the arete, step around this and ascend the pleasant front face. The crux is the section shared with Hollybush Gully, though the traverse is a bit bold. © Rockfax

βeta: The start is mad as hell! Really thrutchy, with no skill required just brute force and lots of ignorance. If you do get started, it's good although the right wall of the gully is nice and green. Traversed too high, but still worthwhile. Little protection once traversed. I really need to buy some cams!
