Rockfax Description
A long climb with some difficult and committing moves, plus a good covering of vegetation in places. Much more of an undertaking in wet conditions. Start at the base of the wall.
1) 25m. Gain a heather ledge/terrace and take the wide corner-crack until moves left reach a stance.
2) 27m. Move left to below a groove and make some difficult moves up it, and the corner above, to a stance and belay below a large overhang.
3) 24m. Move left and take a scoop to a vegetated ledge. From the left end of the ledge take a vegetated crack rightwards to another large vegetated ledge. Belay on its right below a slab.
4) 26m. Climb the slabs heading leftwards midway to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: Pitch three very tricky in the wet and slow to dry (seepage from the overhang). First pitch now just steep gardening
