Excellent technical face climbing on the lower section with a shoulder-wrenching finale through the bulge and crack above. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Interesting and varied climbing. Start by making an awkward and delicate move onto the first break and gain small positive holds on the main wall. Use these carefully to reach the welcome juggy break below the overhang. Make a hard steep overhanging move to gain the ledge above and finish up the jamming crack. A Bowles Classic!
