Rockfax Description
An excellent easier route which makes it a bit of a rarity on limestone. The start is by far and away the most difficult section of the climb and the route can be done in a single pitch.
1) 17m. Start just to the right of the cracks (the cracks can be used as an easier start at Mod). Climb up to a thin crack and then step left and up to easier-angled rock. Head for the left-to-right slanting crack just right of a small tree. Climb this to a ledge and belay.
2) 13m. The slim corner and square overhang are luckily nowhere near as hard as they first appear and have some good gear possibilities. © Rockfax

βeta: Too Polished for a VD, particularly if attempting it as a single pitch, I think; good protection though. Great outing thoroughly recomend.
