Rockfax Description
A protracted expedition that weaves its way up the face. Start at a block below a large tree.
1) 4c, 34m. Head up to the tree and then take the left-leading rampline to a ledge on the edge of the face.
2) 12m. Scramble right and traverse a flake to a ledge and belay (this is shared with Overhanging Bastion).
3) 4c, 26m. On the right is a smooth narrow slab that cuts up rightwards. Gain the slab and follow it to below a vertical crack. Climb the crack and its continuation to a ledge and belay.
4) 32m. Take the long slab to its end and a spike belay. © Rockfax
