Rockfax Description
A lesser known Shepherd's Crag classic that needs a steady leader as the climbing is bold. Start at a twin-stemmed tree.
1) 4b, 30m. Move up and right to a thin crack in a wide recess. Pull right onto the arete and make bold moves to a ledge. Move up the corner above, traverse left across the wall and pull up to a slab. Climb the slab and then go right to a tree and belay.
2) 4a, 14m. Follow the open corner-line above until forced left. © Rockfax
