Rockfax Description
A hidden gem. From the left-hand end of the ledge, climb a tough crack to the faultline. Step right and follow a pleasant groove to an easy slab. The slab leads up rightwards to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: The abseil rope needs to runs more to the right from the last stake facing the sea, otherwise you end up on the wrong ledge. The crack is hard

βeta: A good route. The start is steep and requires a bit of technique. I think 4C is fair. www.dizzy-heights.co.uk

βeta: That initial crack is quite hard for 4c. Straight forward after that though. Quite an atmospheric route.
