Rockfax Description
A classic route that weaves an unlikely line up this fine cliff. Start below the right end of the quartz pavement where an easy grassy ramp leads up and right.
1) 15m. Climb the grassy ramp to a stance.
2) 25m. Climb up 3m to gain the quartzy ledge. Saunter along this to belay under the groove at its left-hand end.
3) 4a, 35m. Climb the groove for 10m then trend right along a crack to reach the tip of the pinnacle. Step left and climb the slab above to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: One of the oddest routes around but superb for it. The slippery quartz traverse is amazing but the pinnacle pitch even better.

βeta: Gear on quartz traverse is sparse and exposure massive. Backed off as HS is my upper limit to lead and this felt too much. Wonderful P3, the spike pitch.
