Rockfax Description
A lovely pitch varied with the main interest at the start and end. Start up the steep crack just right of the cave and then as the left wall is encountered head rightwards to an easing midway at small vegetated ledges. Climb the steeper wall and flared groove until a final sequence reaches a tree and easier climbing that gains a big tree on the edge of the cliff. © Rockfax

βeta: Low in the grade. Loads of good gear. You can lace it, so take lots of 1-8 nuts. Would be good for someone\'s 1st HVS lead. Hardest bit is the beginning.
