Rockfax Description
The eye-catching dark corner on the left side of the central leaning wall is a great line and climb.
1) 4c, 18m. As for Pluto.
2) 6a, 34m. Make technical and committing moves up the initial section of the corner before heading up to where it steepens once again. Strenuous climbing past the right side of the overhang gains less steep (but still sustained) climbing that eventually leads to easier ground. There are a number of aging pegs in this pitch. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The great corner is climbed past a number (17?) of old pegs. Very tiring with a fairly bold start.

Jeff Lamb and Ed Cleasby 1979.
