Rockfax Description
The larger cave has a pillar of rock in it and above this a long corner runs up the left-hand end of the roof high above. It can be reached direct (pull!) or from left or right and gives fine sustained climbing. © Rockfax

βeta: Tough for the grade, esp when the crack is greasy (as it was yesterday). Lots of gear so not arguing with VS, but should definitely be 4c. Can't believe the HS 4b next to it gets the same technical grade! It's a (highly enjoyable) path by comparison.
