UKC

14m.

Rockfax Description
The flake leads to ledges, move right to the carved letters DC and a step up and left to another ledge. Finish up the steep crack to a shrubby exit. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Requires a committed move on the ledge, not for the feint hearted.

βeta: Nice climbing to the ledge. The traverse is doable on delicate moves but the gear is a long way back below your feet- so there is ground fall risk here. From the DC letters upwards the climbing is chossy and really run-out and the top-out is pulling on heather on steep choss. Not worth it imo.

βeta: Led it at the weekend. The traverse felt exposed as the last bit of gear was below my feet as I started the traverse. The wall above "DC" had no gear. Having said all of that the climbing was only just 4a. It's just a head thing.
