UKC

Rockfax Description
A testing route that crosses some impressive territory and has a run-out section on the upper part of the first pitch. Start at a small perched rock spanning from a spike.
1) 5a, 30m. From the perched block, move up rightwards to a crack on the right side of a smooth wall. Traverse right to an open groove/scoop and follow this boldly to a belay.
2) 4c, 20m. Move right 3m and then take the groove and cracks above to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Pete lead p1. Awesome pitch with ace climbing. I lead p2. steady away and then a short scramble to the belay. CRAG SWAG - Had to leave a large nut (WC Classic Rock size 10 from memory) just right of the belay ledge at the top of P1 - just in the off chance any one finds it, happens to read this and wants to return it ;)
