Rockfax Description
A striking line with some sustained climbing. The route improves considerably after a vegetated initial section on its first pitch. Start just right of the scree at the base of Walker's Gully.
1) 4a, 35m. Ascend vegetated ledges to a wide crack with a flake in it. Climb past it and up the chimney-like feature and more vegetation to a stance and belay below an overhanging crack.
2) 5a, 25m. Climb the steep but brief crack with difficulty (good protection) and continue to a ledge and belay.
3) 4b, 20m. The groove to a belay on a grass ledge below the final corner/groove.
4) 4c, 25m. Difficult climbing up the steep corner/groove gains ledges and broken grassy ground. © Rockfax
