UKC

49m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A steep and strong line that links some prominent features on the left-hand side of the main cliff. Start a short distance left of the awkward step-down in the path.
1) 4b, 10m. Start up the short chimney, then continue up the right-hand crack-line and wall, finishing direct.
2) 4c, 23m. Move up the blocks above the belay to a ledge. Step right and climb a steep black vein to a ledge and belay on the right below a large overhang.
3) 4c, 26m. From the left end of the ledge climb up left of the overhang and move up to a crack that runs back rightwards. Near the top of the crack make a puzzling final move to easier ground that leads left to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Roxfax topo in 2010 West Country Climbs and App has the line for the starting pitch in the wrong place. It is drawn where Dominator optional start P1 goes E1! The description however is correct. The Climbers Club guide has a much clearer topo for this lower pitch (called Zig Zag optional start A and B).

βeta: You can run first two pitches into one. The big ledge is defintely the more comortable belay spot at top of pitch 2 though gear didn't look great. I kept going and bunched us into a corner on 3 bomber nuts.

βeta: Awesome climb this. I backed pff the lead but Andy led well. We did the alt b start. Sustained climbing, good pro & no rope drag if you extend on the top pitch with 120 slings. Recommend this baby

βeta: The pitch lengths in the CC guide book are misleading. The ungraded blocky first pitch from the ledge is about 10m. The second up the black vein to the slopey belay ledge is about 5m at most.
