Rockfax Description
A tremendous main pitch. Start at a left-leading slabby overlap (often very wet).
1) 4a, 10m. Climb the slab and bulge to a vegetated ledge and tree belay.
2) 5c, 45m. Follow a grey streak up the centre of the wall on surprisingly good holds to below the mid-height overhang. Move slightly right and pull over onto the upper wall. Continue to a ledge (good wires on the left) then head directly up the fingery and technical face to the top. Tree belay. Abseil off. © Rockfax
