One of the UK's most popular multi-pitch climbs - a true classic - long, varied and with a much photographed top pitch. Start below a short right-facing corner/crack 5m right of the pinnacle.
1) 28m. Climb the short right-facing corner/crack then move right to a corner and ramp that leads to a grassy bay with trees. Scramble up right to a large tree belay.
2) 10m. Scramble up past trees to a belay below twin grooves.
3) 23m. Climb the left-hand groove and, at its end, gain the top of a block. Sidle right along it and get established in a slabby corner. Follow the arete to a stance and belays.
4) 11m. Head up the wall to a small pinnacle and, from its top, climb the short steep exposed wall to the top (or the crack right of the pinnacle). © Rockfax
