Rockfax Description
This ancient classic can feel bit bold. Climb the easy slab until the projecting buttress to the right can be reached by a short traverse. Balance up this to a final sketchy move (large gear or thread) or sneak off right if you are too short. © Rockfax

FA. Bernard Simmonds and L.Chapman 17/Jul/1939.

βeta: Who put the house brick in the top break ? Once above the green this is a lovely climb with the hanging slab in a superb position of exposure but be warned the bottom break is the last protection unless you have some very big gear
