Rockfax Description
On a less steep crag this would make a good HVS! Start below the overhanging flake-crack.
1) 5c, 20m. Climb the flake and push on up the short wall above to a ledge. Continue up the corner to another ledge and belay.
2) 5b, 25m. Continue up a short corner then head right along a break to the base of the Yellow Slab. Climb the long corner above (can be wet) and move right at its top to a ledge and belay.
3) 5a, 16m. Move left and climb up to a ledge below the final layback crack on the top pitch of The Centaur - finish up it. © Rockfax
