UKC

38m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Not much more direct than the original and at the upper end of the grade due to the battle that is the first pitch!
1) 5a, 14m. Climb the wide crack that splits the right-hand side of the huge face awkwardly to a good stance on the regular route.
2) 4c, 14m. The flared groove, then the flake on the left, lead to a ledge. Originally the wall on the right was climbed, deviously.
3) 4a, 10m. Finish up the widening and easing crack just left. © Rockfax
