Rockfax Description
A Wallowbarrow classic up the broad rib and recessed grooves above. Start to the left of the large tree below a groove.
1) 4a, 34m. Climb the groove. Continue passing blocks on the right (possible belay on the left) to gain the upper section of the rib. Climb this via cracks and grooves to a good belay ledge and block at the top of the rib.
2) 4a, 14m. On the right are a series of blind grooves that lead to the top. Follow the grooves with a difficult initial section to finish with a final tug on the 'John Thomas' hold. © Rockfax

2. Straight up the wall to a big ledge with a big block on it
3. A great pitch - Move right at the back of the ledge and up a series of well-used groves with a brilliant phallic hold near the top.
