Rockfax Description
Climb up into the back of the gloomy recess, then hand traverse the overhanging right wall, swinging round the arete to finish easily. Feels bold, though the tall can make quite a bit of progress with their feet still on the slabby wall - cheaters. © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown 1958.

βeta: Quite an intimidating traverse out from the back of the cave, but on excellent holds, and it is possible to bridge some of the moves. Just as hard to second as it is to lead!
