Rockfax Description
A good route, although some of the gear is fiddly so requires a steady approach. Start just left of the overhanging corner.
1) 4a, 22m. Climb the white slab just left of the corner to a small stance about half way up the slab.
2) 4a, 22m. Head up the continuation crack that leads up from the stance. Follow this to the roof and then make a delicate traverse left to a block in the roof (or follow Eagle Finish). Pull over this and head up to the long ledge and block belay.
3) 7m. As for Africa Rib. © Rockfax
