Rockfax Description
A long and varied climb with some good sections and some slightly dirty rock. Start at a slab in front of a large fallen tree.
1) 4c, 22m. Move up to the top of the slab and climb a crack on the left to a ledge (close to dirty rock on the left). Head left up a corner to a tree and belay.
2) 5a, 25m. Move up left to another tree and pull out right to a slim corner/groove. Climb this until it fades, before a tricky move left can be made to below a corner. Now go left and then back right to belay at a tree.
3) 4c, 28m. Easy moves lead up to a flake. Move left to gain a corner which is climbed to an exit on the right. Climb left of a holly bush to cracks which lead to the top. © Rockfax
