Climb to the small cave/hole then up the overhanging crack system (threads and peg) to a flake (on Blitzkrieg) and move right. Head back left and then up and leftwards past pegs to below a groove. Climb the groove with difficulty (peg) to a ledge and small tree. Move up left to a belay on the left. Abseil station here.2) 6a, 16m. Climb up over an overhang and onto a slab on the right. Move right to a niche then up to a thin crack system. Follow the wall left of the thin crack to another crack and finish up it. © Rockfax
