Rockfax Description
Varied and exciting climbing on fine rock. Climb a steep corner then pull up left to a brown runnel which leads to easier ground and an overhang. Pull over the overhang on good holds then head up the wall to reach a final slab and short corner-crack that lead to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Nice climbing but gear very spaced and not ideal - fiddly to place and / or a bit sideways-on. No gear at all between the initial cracks and the left edge of the slab. Crux groove (sort of) protected by a large sideways nut, poor no.4 cam and poor horizontal nut - all in the break below it. Wouldn't fancy falling off the crux and definitely would not recommend this as a first VS lead. Direct Route is much better and safer.
