Rockfax Description
Worthwhile but bold. Starting at the tunnel, climb the arete on its left before pulling round onto the front face. A poorly-protected mantelshelf reaches better holds, then traverse right to a wide crack to finish. High in the grade, bizarrely it used to be VD! © Rockfax

βeta: Much harder for the short - that jug may be huge but it's a long way away

βeta: VS 4A gives a better impression of the nature of the climbing and lack of protection. Beware - the obvious 'jug' on the left of the mantleshelf ledge is loose and will give someone a nasty surprise !
