Rockfax Description
The face to the right is wonderful, and a great DWS; expect a crux at about 11m. From the slender pillar at the high water mark, climb up to gain the face proper, and continue up to a blunt spike. Trend right into a groove, then make hard moves to gain better holds; follow these up and left to the top. (S1/2, F6c) © Rockfax
