UKC

56m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine climb to the left of the ever-popular Blue Sky making the most of the steep rock to the left of its upper section.
1) 4c, 26m. Start as for Blue Sky but continue leftwards up the long groove to a ledge and superb cave belay.
2) 5b, 30m. Climb direct up a short groove then move left into a long diagonal groove which is easy at first but becomes harder near the top where some barn-door moves gain easier ground left of the overhang. © Rockfax

βeta: HVS 4c grade is wrong for this. Pitch 2 takes a very logical line but one which is closer to 5b at the top. Climb direct up a short groove then move left into a long diagonal groove which is easy at first but becomes harder near the top where some barn-door moves gain easier ground left of the overhang. More like HVS 4c, 5b or even E1 4c, 5b.

βeta: I’m not sure if anyone really knows which line to take, just pick one and go for it
