Rockfax Description
A wandering but reasonable climb that has a steep section on pitch 2. Start 4m right of Bilberry Buttress.
1) 17m. Move up to and climb a chimney/wide crack to the belay on a ledge shared with Bilberry Buttress.
2) 22m. Move left to below a corner. Climb easily to the steep corner and climb it with difficulty to a good ledge and belay.
3) 19m. Move up rightwards on the sloping ramp (past the crack of Bilberry Buttress) to a corner. Climb the corner a short way, then move left and then up past a large block to gain a ledge. Move right to a belay at a tree. Descend left (looking out). © Rockfax

βeta: There a jammed wire on the third pitch which makes a welcome runner. A no 5 DMM cam is very helpful to protect the second as they ascend to the oak tree ledge!
