Rockfax Description
Good climbing up the steep wall, although a little wandering is required for the grade. From the thin crack, head for the roofs. Traverse under these (think about rope-drag!) until a groove allows access to the trees. © Rockfax

βeta: Can next party please take up some tat. Thread on slab is in poor condition, tape on bolt is abysmal and rope around loweroff tree isn't good. I lowered off the Yew, which has much newer kit on but is a slightly sketchy scramble at the top around lots of loose rock. Smaller thread low down could probably do with replacing but there is other gear thereabouts.

βeta: The threads are in poor condition but not really essential.

βeta: Not much crack climbing on this route - fingery to the obvious niche at 12ft, v short crack followed by fantastic reachy pocket-pulling to the roof. Bolt does not inspire much confidence BTW!
