Rockfax Description
A tremendous corner with well-protected climbing after a slightly intimidating first 5m. From the large pine tree, move up left to a corner and climb this (bold) to enter the main corner. Follow the well-protected corner to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: (Another!) Big flake has fallen off halfway up. What is left is currently very muddy but not difficult to get past. Rock below it appears ok but not totally solid.

βeta: (May 23) Several large blocks (briefcase size) have come down recently from the lower half of the route and there are a few blocks just to the right of the line which are on their way. Careful, watch your ropes and belayer. Also very dirty.

βeta: There are lots of comments about loose rock recently. I only came across one loose hold which I happily stood quite a lot and it's still there. The rest of it seemed sounds to me, so perhaps don't be put off. Obviously use your own judgement though.
