Rockfax Description
A great route which is probably the most popular route on the wall, although that isn't saying much. Start at mid-to-low tide towards the left-hand side of the wall. Climb a crack through the roof and continue to a recess - a thread and a rest. Traverse left to a bottomless groove and climb this for 6m until it is possible to traverse left again around a hanging arete to the upper section of the left-hand corner of the zawn. Finish up this. The top is loose so a pre-placed rope down the last 5m is not a bad idea. © Rockfax
