Rockfax Description
A wandering but varied pitch. Start at a flake at the base of a rib. Climb the rib and move right to a wide crack on the left side of a pinnacle. From the top of the pinnacle, step right onto the wall and then back leftwards to a crack that is followed to the terrace and tree belays. It is possible to traverse easily rightwards to join the upper pitches of nearby routes.
Descent - Scramble off right (looking out) behind a pinnacle with care - this is the Fisher's Folly Area descent line. © Rockfax
