Rockfax Description
A brilliant first pitch with great moves and good rock.
1) 6a, 30m. Start below a short hanging corner. Pull though a bulge onto a slab (usually a bit left of the corner). Move up to the roof then trend up leftwards to a peg. Make a hard move back right underneath the peg then step up to a ledge. Continue to a break then up past a thread to a short groove on the left. Climb up then step right and move up to the breaks and traverse off left to a tree and good bolt belay. Best to finish here.
2) 5a, 15m. Climb up the dirty groove above and wish you had abseiled off. © Rockfax
