UKC

52m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4+, 22m. Devious but excellent. Start by the old green name and make a long traverse left above the overhangs to the second bolt-line. A direct start is a lot harder (6a) and a bit unbalanced. Climb the face, steep and tricky to start, then step right to a belay on the edge of the cave. Twin bolts hidden in the shadows.
2) 3+, 18m. Climb the red groove then step out left - exposed - and finish up the slab above the chimney of Petreles. © Rockfax

βeta: Excellent route, the belay at the top is two bolts and no chain, probably best to walk down the gully, as shown in the guide.

βeta: I thought pitch 1 was pleasant enough but fairly bland, though the route really came to life with the exposed moves out onto the rib on pitch 2. Easy, but what a position!

βeta: Best route at the grade I have done! There are some moves on the first pitch where a slip would be serious, as the bolts are placed in a weird way. The second pitch is easy, but nice.

βeta: Pitch 1 is superbly steep and exposed. Pitch 2 more like 3+ and a bit of an anticlimax but still well worth doing.
