A fairly popular line that has some interesting climbing and a few mossy sections. Start at the large corner.1) 4b, 13m. Climb the corner and move right to belay.2) 4c, 15m. Take the groove behind the stance to a roof. Move right to steep but easier climbing on good holds that leads to a stance under the large roof.3) 4c, 18m. Traverse left 8m and move up left to a small overhang. Pass it and gain another overhang above that is passed on its left to access a groove and slab above. Belay on a ledge.4) 4b, 24m. Move right to a rib and follow a series of corners, slabs and short walls rightwards to steeper ground and a bulge. Pass this on the right to gain easier climbing and the top. © Rockfax
