Rockfax Description
The central line of the crag is a classic, giving sustained climbing with some very hard moves. The nature of the rock means that many of the holds are less helpful than they appear. A lot of the fixed gear is now very old. Start below a clean V-groove.
1) 6a, 20m. Climb to the V-groove. At its top, move leftwards and climb the wall to a bulge. Move leftwards through this to a belay which has some old fixed gear.
2) 5c, 30m. Move left, then climb diagonally up right to a small roof. Pull through this and go up the ramp. At its top, pull back left through the top roof. © Rockfax

βeta: Two pegbolts on the lower section, both by old peg placements. Ab station ok, one of the wires (no.9) looking a bit rusty.

βeta: Flashed the 6a move then ran out of steam going through the bulge before the stance. Grrrr.
