Rockfax Description
A popular and relatively easy route. Despite its length, the route has a big feel - especially on the final arete. Start at the toe of the clean ribbon of rock that goes to the top of the crag.
1) 20m. Head up a series of walls left of the rib before heading right below a block to the rib. Move back left above the block to a belay.
2) 15m. Climb left into a groove and then move right onto the edge and up onto easy terrain then follow the clean path to belay below the final impressive tower.
3) 25m. Move up to a ledge on the right-hand side of the tower, then move up and left to the other side of the arete. Climb this in a sensational position to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Rockfax route lengths are closer to the truth, but the Climbers Club guidebook description is better. Walk along the top of the crag and keep looking for a stile at the top of a broad gully which marks a steep descent.

βeta: Well-named - starting to become overgrown at the start. The abseil point was in good nick (rope loop under a low-lying roof) but there is a jungle of brambles where the abseil lands. Take secateurs! The actual climbing is fine - good value for a VDiff.
