Rockfax Description
When in condition, the central depression and upper cracks offer a brilliant experience that is low in the grade. Start at the left-hand end of a high ledge, below a shallow corner.
Climb the technical central groove to a more defined section of the depression, where the difficulties build before the final impending headwall is reached and climbed on more-positive holds. © Rockfax

βeta: Hard to know what the anchor is, we went right, it would appear this picture is taken at an angle. Right seemed the best way. but there is a lack of anchors up there.

βeta: The anchors are up and to the right of the final bolt, you can’t see them until you move right and above the break.

βeta: Did this today during the hottest summer for a millenium and the crack at 2/3s height was still dripping. A great climb, spoiled by the wet. Does it ever get dry?

βeta: Superb sustained climbing - this must be one of the best routes on the Isle.
