Rockfax Description
A stunning pitch and one of the area's finest. Very sustained with good but hard-won gear.
1) 10m. Make an easy traverse leftwards to a stance and belay just below the long band of overhangs - as for Kipling Groove.
2) 6a, 35m. Move up to and over the overhang and climb the sustained thin crack-line to below bulging rock. Move leftwards before pulling back right to gain and finish up the final corner of Kipling Groove. © Rockfax
