A classic. Three contrasting pitches give a wonderful tour of the crag. Start below a left-facing slim corner.1) 4c, 18m. Climb the slim corner to a ledge.2) 4c, 26m. Move out rightwards to below the diagonal break and follow it past a corner/groove to a ledge and belay.3) 5a, 23m. Move back left and then gain the right rib of the long corner/groove. Climb up rightwards past an overlap, then slightly leftwards across a corner to easier ground that gains the top. © Rockfax
