Rockfax Description
An old favourite. It gives good crack and wall climbing on wonderful rock. Start below the cracks 3m right of the block. Climb the cracks to a break. Move up then left to a hidden flake hold and pull back right and up to another crack. Finish direct. © Rockfax

βeta: One of the best from a week of HVS/E1 climbing. The pocketed headwall seemed better climbed direct just left of the (awkward) final crack. And that wire's still there!

βeta: The jammed nut is still there (as James says, in the best placement) but there is other bomber gear around.

βeta: There's currently a rather large loose hold in the wide section of the right-hand crack in the lower wall - this is precisely the point where you can place your second bit of gear, so don't say you haven't been warned! There's also a jammed wire in the base of the final crack after the run-out section - looked ok, but probably won't last the winter in decent nick and is in the best placement! Apart from that - good climbing!
