Rockfax Description
One of the finest E2 pitches in the country. Remarkably sustained and technical. Start at the left-leading rampline.
1) 14m. Pitch 1 of Phoenix.
2) 5c, 45m. Go up a crack and move right past an overhang into the corner above. Traverse right to a shallow corner/groove and follow this and a short crack to a small sloping ledge below a tall narrow corner. Climb the corner, make a tricky exit from it and move into the large corner on the left. Follow the large corner to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Takes a loooooong time to dry. Worth carrying a bar towel with you, though may be a bit like bailing out the titanic with a teacup…

βeta: There is a loose block ready to fall just on the left after the top corner and just before the wet gully.
