Rockfax Description
A pleasant line up the centre of a flat face. Start just right of a large boulder. Easy but poorly-protected climbing gains a ledge at half height. Climb the groove above and exit right. © Rockfax

βeta: Enjoyable, well protected if you can find first placement. I traversed right at top of left traverse about 2m then ascended wall. A good severe

βeta: First 5m has bearly no protection and is the hardest part, however still easy. Not sure why it's a 4a. Felt easier. Line unclear.

βeta: Says poorly protected in the guidebook, but I didn't find it that hard to place gear despite being relatively new to trad. If you're used to cams or (like Lee) don't have anything small it'd be tough.

βeta: Poorly protected but easy climbing to the ledge at half height. Not clear where the line goes after that. I climbed the groove and exited to the right - was this correct? Felt ok for the grade although possibly a 4a move.
