Rockfax Description
The thin crack on the left side of the wall is a striking line and is the focus of the superb second pitch. Start at a rounded spike below a narrow corner.
1) 4a, 9m. Climb the difficult corner to below an overhang, and move out right to cracks that lead to a stance and block belay.
2) 4a, 22m. Traverse left above the overhang to gain the base of the thin crack. Follow the crack to a jutting pinnacle and continue above slightly leftwards it to a belay on a good ledge.
3) 20m. Take the short crack behind the belay to an easy ridge. © Rockfax
