A sustained, varied climb and one of the best E1s at Swanage. Start under a prominent, smooth-sided corner.
1) 5a, 18m. Climb a corner to the roof, and swing right to beneath a smooth sided corner. Climb the fine corner to the mid-height break and belay on a ledge to the right.
2) 5b, 15m. Step right onto the wall and climb easily, but boldly up to the chert band and roof - old hidden peg. Arrange good gear and step left. Pull over the overhang and finish up the bold wall. © Rockfax
