Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

Kestrels nest on the crag but no formal restriction is in place as they are not Schedule 1 (legally protected) or locally rare birds. If they are in residence on the crag, please climb past their nest site as quickly as possible taking care not to cause any damage and limit disturbance.

Rockfax Description
An excellent tour of the buttress that culminates in a superbly positioned final crack pitch. Well protected. Start on the path below a low-angled rib as for Malediction Direct.
1) 24m. As for Malediction Direct.
2) 13m. Move right and climb the right-trending line for 9m, then move right to a belay at a large spike.
3) 4b, 12m. Climb the appealing hand/finger-crack on the left to a sloping ledge. Move left and climb the final wall to the top on good holds. © Rockfax

βeta: Great route. High VS 4c probably; possibly low HVS 5a. Best done as scramble followed by one long, thrilling pitch.
