UKC

Rockfax Description
A commendable pitch with some testing sections. Start below a slim corner. Climb the corner and crack to a narrow ledge. Move out rightwards to a small corner just left of the arete. Move up and then right around the arete to a small ledge. Traverse right and climb a crack just left of the corner of Mithrandir to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Top end, adventurous VS 4c? Others may disagree, but personally I wouldn't scoff at 5a. Although the start is marred by vegetation and the finale is perennially wet, I thought this a really good and characterful Lakeland VS. I almost decked off the start due to carelessness and wet boots, and the whole climb felt quite exciting.
