Rockfax Description
34m. A great classic. It can be done in two pitches. From the toe of the buttress, trend up and right to the rib and climb this past awkward moves to reach the base of the wider upper crack system. Climb this - tricky at the overhang - and finish up a short wall at the back of the final ledge. © Rockfax

βeta: We split this into two pitches which makes for 2 contrasting pitches. The rock feels a bit detached in places but actually seems to be quite secure. The final chimney is more solid than it looks. Good route.
