Rockfax Description
One of the best sandstone climbs in the area. A super outing following a series of breaks across the face, past two distinct potholes. One hard move near the top notches up the difficulty. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start by the obvious worn footholds below and to the left of the potholes. Step up on to a small break and reach up right for another small break. Reach up again leaning right to an awkward hand shuffle to an imprint of a bear’s paw. Reach the crack and large ironstone jugs to finish. (Since 19 May 2019, part of the large jug at the top has broken off, please keep this into consideration when climbing the route).
