Rockfax Description
One of Borrowdale's best single-pitch HVSs that combines diverse climbing with an exciting finale. Start 4m left of the gearing-up ledge below a wide corner. Move easily up to the base of the corner. Traverse out left across its left wall and move up to a ledge. Climb a crack to below a narrow overhang and traverse right to another crack that leads to an overlap. Pull past the overlap and finish up the exposed cracks. © Rockfax
