Rockfax Description
A cracking route best linked with New West Climb. Scramble up out of the gully to below a crack in a short wall.
1) 17m. Gain a large ledge above the crack, then climb a tricky groove to reach a belay ledge on the left.
2) 33m. Climb up steeply right to a ledge and up again to a slab. Cross this rightwards to a crack in the wall just right of a corner. Climb the crack to a ledge, then traverse leftwards for 8m (passing under a set of dirty grooves) to blocks. Climb up the blocks to a ledge and belay.
3) 23m. Climb the groove above to easier ground and the top. © Rockfax
