Rockfax Description
A varied outing but a bit grassy/dirty in places. Start at a conspicuous slim crack in the lower wall.
1) 4b, 20m. Take the short difficult crack to a grass ledge. Move up the corner on the right then follow the groove and wall on the left to a ledge and belay. The initial difficult crack can be avoided on the right.
2) 15m. Start at the left side of the ledge and take the wall above to easy ground. Follow it rightwards to grassy ledges and a belay.
3) 30m. Climb the slim corner and cracks in the wall to a protruding block and belay ledges above. © Rockfax
