UKC

28m.

Rockfax Description
The classic of the crag, and one of Cornwall's finest single-pitches. The difficulty of the start is influenced by the position of the huge boulder at the base of the wall, which moves around during very heavy seas! Start on the boulder.
Pull onto the steep wall and move up to good wires. Make some hard moves to get established at the base of the easier-angled headwall above. Climb the sustained thin crack-line all the way to the top, or from midway up the headwall, move left to a small corner and finish up this. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A recent rockfall and movement of the starting boulder has increased the grade, but the quality remains the same.
