Rockfax Description
A real gem featuring a technical lower wall and a go-for-it finish. Start at the twin trees. Move up the small corner and pull right to a tufa (bolts above). Traverse left to a peg and crank up to easier-angled rock and the lower-off. A rack of wires is required. © Rockfax

FA. Pat McVey, Mark Danson 1978. A great find that ensured the later popularity of the crag..

βeta: Most people go up right to clip the bolts on "shot by both sides" but the route climbs directly to the peg which can be hard to see.
