Rockfax Description
24m. A fine climb up a great line; the soaring corner bounding Yellow Wall. Layback and jam the corner passing the jutting nose with difficulty. The shelf of Rabbit Ledge offers a lie-down rest (and a possible belay). Once recovered, step left into the continuation chimney and wriggle up this to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: First HVS lead last year. Saw 'the line' and had to climb it, even though I probably wasn't really ready for it. Took a while to work out the bulge, but good rest position to go back to directly underneath. Traverse out right to rabbit ledge left the palate a bit sticky aswell! Still don't think it's three stars having done it several times since.
