Rockfax Description
Well-protected and delightful climbing. Take small and medium size wires. Start 2m right of the large vegetated corner that defines the left side of the slab.
Move up the slab to a narrow right-facing corner/groove and climb this to a small ledge. Continue up a thin crack and at its end move up right slightly on pockets at the change in angle to below another thin crack. Take the thin crack and easier ground above to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: My second pulled a brick-sized block loose on the last few meters of the climb. Possibly lulled into a false sense of security by the fact that the rock is pretty solid until the very end.

βeta: Some of the best and hardest climbing on this is above the bolts. Don't short-change yourself; go to the trees!

βeta: Well protected and worth going all the way to the top, but 50m rope essential to reach tree belay.
