Rockfax Description
A fine and testing line that has been upgraded as the protection placements are now worn. Unfortunately the top pitch does get dirty at times. Start below an oblong spike just above the left end of the raised ledge.
1) 4c, 14m. Climb up past the spike and small ledge to a left-facing narrow corner. Follow the corner to a ledge and belay.
2) 4c, 19m. Move leftwards to a corner and then up and left onto a rib which leads to a sloping ledge and belay.
3) 5b, 17m. The overhang and slim corner/groove is hardest to start and sustained above. © Rockfax
