Rockfax Description
Great positions combined with adventurous terrain. Scramble leftwards out under the wall to a large block (the start of The Appian Way), then continue to a belay below the right-hand of two corners/grooves.
1) 4c, 18m. Climb the corner/groove and take a belay 6m below a roof at the top of the corner/groove.
2) 5b, 35m. Move out left and up a groove and slab to the arete. Climb the leaning wall above (small wires) to a tiny ledge and traverse right into the corner - strenuous. Climb the corner to a roof and traverse left to an exposed belay.
3) 4b, 20m. Move right and climb a corner, bulge and slab to the top. © Rockfax

P1 4c Climb open grooves to old thread. P2 5b Climb up a metre and step left to a mossy groove. Climb this to rattling block and step up left to below overhanging wall (crux). Pull through on good holds. Above this move up and right into corner to place protection. Original route climbs this corner but cleaner rock up wall or arete in great position.
