Rockfax Description
Well travelled and with good climbing on the first two pitches. Keep an eye out for stones dislodged from above if the descent route is busy. Start below a corner-crack around 20m up the gully from the gearing-up spot by the tree.
1) 4b, 20m. Ascend the difficult crack, before climbing the rib on the left and the groove above to a belay and stance at a holly bush below a corner.
2) 20m. Follow the corner to easy ground on the descent line. An escape down the Central Descent line can easily be made at this point.
3) 22m. Walk over to a rib and follow it to a ledge.
4) 18m. Continue up the best line to the top. © Rockfax
