Rockfax Description
First climbed in 1894! Follow the runnel below the face to the furthest gully.
1) Head up the gully passing a few barriers to arrive below a massive boulder that sits atop a stack of blocks.
2) From a central line move right to directly below the massive boulder. Ledges and ramps to its left provide an exposed passage past this.
3) Carry on up to a prominent prow and pass to its left. Continue up the left side of the gully to the left edge. Balance up this rib carefully on good rock to its top, where the gully peters out.
Continuation - Continue up Notch Arete. © Rockfax
