Rockfax Description
A poor bushwhacking starts leads to a fantastic pillar. Start below a big yew tree about 15m up the cliff in a groove.
1) 15m. Climb the groove and traverse to the yew tree and belay.
2) 5b, 34m. Climb the crack in the slab to a spike and move up and left on flakes to a small roof. Balancy moves up onto a ledge on the left lead to a very cruxy pull onto the rib. The stepped rib is a joy to climb and leads to the tree belay on Shadow Wall.
3) 8m. As for the last pitch of Shadow Wall or abseil off the tree. © Rockfax
