Rockfax Description
A Gouther Crag favourite. Start at a crack-line that is just to the right of a mossy section of the wall. Climb the gradually widening crack system and then a groove to a ledge (possible belay on the left). Move right and climb the narrow corner and crack to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Starts half way up the gully at the right hand side of Fang Buttress. Ascend the crack systems that run up the centre of the slabs. At first these are thin but quickly become larger and more defined the further you ascend.
Most parties will belay at the top of the main slab on a large ledge on the left (with a ring peg), although it is easy to climb as a single pitch.
From the ledge, step right back onto the main slab into an open groove. Ascend this and the easier rocks above.
