Rockfax Description
An exciting tour of the crag at a reasonable standard. The main pitch takes time to dry out. Start at the right-hand end of the terrace below the cave.
1) 4a, 15m. Head up rightwards on slabby ground to a belay on the edge of the buttress.
2) 4c, 25m. Traverse rightwards to a wide groove and stand on a small ledge. Continue up the wide groove to another ledge and then traverse rightwards until a move down reaches a corner-crack. Climb a short way to a good ledge and spike belay on the right. Protection is spaced on this pitch and is a fairly serious undertaking for both leader and second. © Rockfax

βeta: Airy route in an exciting position.-had a bit of a scare on it... Don't forget helmet and chalk next time! Hard to get to get to/from the crag - ground is loose. Would be nasty in the wet as v dirty and holds slope outwards.

βeta: Approach needs updating / modifying. For communist convert. Follow a vague path up that leads to the LH side of the crag. This then heads back on itself leading to a small 5m chimney. Mossy and steep but with good jugs, then follow grassy slopes to base of route. Could be very serious in damp conditions. Leave bags below chimney to save repeating this process.
