Rockfax Description
A superb way to continue your adventure.
1) 15m. Scramble up and right towards the quartzy pinnacle above the descent gully. Move right just below the top of the pinnacle onto heather, then continue diagonally right to a short groove and a ledge. Continue zigzagging rightwards with care to reach a tree and flake belay. Beware of people below.
2) 4b, 25m. Move right and up to a large flake. Climb the rightward-trending slab to gain a hand traverse which leads to the Slow Ledge. From the right-hand side of the ledge, climb a groove, then hand traverse right to gain a heathery stance.
3) 4b, 25m. Climb directly up into an unappealing groove and move left round a rib into another groove. Weave upwards on easier ground to a ledge.
4) 25m. Scramble off and belay well back. © Rockfax

βeta: The abseil is quite hard to find. Scramble down the first gulley on the right, it's pretty slippery so be careful. The abseil is about 20metres scrambling down on the right side.
