Rockfax Description
An 'old school' expedition up the crag with some rock climbing and some vegetated ambling as well. Best done in the dry as wet conditions make it unpleasant and the climbing becomes far more serious as protection is spaced. Start at a wide crack just after the steep section of Jack's Rake.
1) 15m. Climb the open groove and ramp/corner above to a pinnacle and belay.
2) 14m. Climb on the left to a vegetated section which gains ledges and a belay below a huge slab.
3) 22m. Traverse easily left on vegetated ledges to a flake belay.
4) 10m. Ascend the deep groove, then move right to a grassy ledge and flake. Pass the flake, move up to another grassy ledge and belay under a short corner.
5) 23m. Climb the corner and move left to below another. A slab on the right gains a ledge (possible stance) from where the final wall is climbed on some good holds. Scramble off to the left. © Rockfax
