UKC

Rockfax Description
Contrasting styles of climbing combine to make up this exceptional route. Start at a conspicuous right-leading ramp.

1) 4c, 16m. Climb the technical ramp rightwards to a belay at the base of a large corner. Not a pitch to be rushed!
2) 4b, 12m. Climb flakes in the wall right of the corner, then move left to a stance and belay below the upper corner.
3) 4c, 25m. Layback the corner-crack to some small ledges below where the corner starts to overhang. Move right and climb slabby rock to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: There is a loose block just at the top of the second pitch. It is cunningly disguised as awesome hold.
