Rockfax Description
Excellent climbing up the diagonal cracks in the wall. A good jamming crack is climbed to the break. Follow the continuation leftwards until it is possible to step up and follow another crack back to the right. The finish up the daunting wide crack is a little easier than it appears from below - or is it? Beware of bats. © Rockfax

βeta: A good route, slightly spoilt by remains of various birds nests & dirt. I found the wide crack a little *harder* than it appeared from below! A pumpy 5b?
