UKC

Rockfax Description
A well-travelled line that features varied and unusual climbing. The final pitch should not be missed. Start on the far left of the lower buttress at a ledge with a tree that has a small slab of rock resting against it.
1) 28m. Climb the wall and corner. Scrambling leads to below two huge projecting blocks. The chimney to the right of the start is VS 4c.
2) 4a, 20m. Move up to a prominent spike under 'The Ears'. Either traverse left and around to the top of the block or chimney up direct - much harder VS 4c. Continue up over more blocks and belay next to a tree.
3) 4a, 20m. Move left to below the crack-seamed wall. Traverse left to V-cracks and climb these to the top. A well-positioned pitch. © Rockfax

βeta: Top pitch is good but not well described. Traverse a foot ledge into the corner. Step left onto a crack seamed wall then 2 steps up to gain a wide crack then left again to a wedged block, pull over this and then easily to the top.
