Rockfax Description
A well-travelled route, although not as popular as its right-hand neighbour. Start on the far left of the wall.
1) 4a, 10m. Climb a crack and flake to a belay by some heather.
2) 24m. Move up, then back right, to almost join Slab Route 1. Step left to a crack and follow this to a small ledge and belay.
3) 14m. Go up the groove and grassy rock above to reach a ledge. Walk off leftwards carefully from here. © Rockfax
