Rockfax Description
A good first pitch that sees some attention and a much harder and spectacular second pitch that is neglected.
1) 5a, 22m. Start as for John Peel but follow the right-trending line up to the stance under the overlap. A worthwhile HVS 5a.
2) 6a, 20m. Pull into the steep groove above to an old peg and climb it until it is possible to get out left onto the wall. Continue up this steeply until it eases and finish up grass and poor rock. © Rockfax
