Rockfax Description
A tough little expedition - the easiest way to the summit, but not that easy. Follow Croton Oil then move right to a crack, which leads to escapable ledges behind the tower. From the right end of these, hand traverse the break strenuously out right (crux) to the rickety flake to finish. Potential for rope-work nightmares! © Rockfax

βeta: realitively hard for vs but the move isn't too hard if you commit rather than pump yourself out as i did the first time i tried this a few months back. went back yesterday and it felt fine, though not much easier than croton oil. rope drag is an issue. 2(or3?) pitches for sure. lovely route. enjoy.

βeta: Great fun - a bit of a laugh battling your way up the start to find that you are still only three feet off the ground!
