Rockfax Description
Start from a block to the right of the base of the gully. Go up the face to harder moves at half-height (holds to the right) which lead to a scary mantelshelf and then easier ground. Despite what you might expect from the grade, it is unprotected. © Rockfax

FA. Colin Kirkus 1930s.
