Rockfax Description
The best beginners' route on the cliff - much better led than top-roped. Climb the cracks on the right then move left to the ear-shaped flake. A mild layback leads into the final groove. © Rockfax

βeta: Was my first lead back in 1995 (sniff). Soloed it on the next outing (gloat). A pleasant little number.

βeta: Looks hard but isn't at all. Good solo if you're confident/competant.
