Rockfax Description
Intricate and absorbing climbing up the middle of the large slabby wall. Start around 11m up the gully from the bottom right edge of the slab.
1) 4a, 30m. Climb a thin crack to steeper ground. Take the wall on the left where the crack disappears, before moves right gain a ledge. Head left up easier-angled rock, then climb direct to a belay on a ledge next to big square blocks.
2) 20m. Climb leftwards passing below an overhang and then move right above it. Finish up the walls and slabs above. © Rockfax
