Rockfax Description
Well-positioned moves on its two upper pitches. Start at a rib below a tree.
1) 24m. Ascend the rib and wide crack past the tree and then traverse right to a belay and stance right of a block.
2) 4c, 16m. Move up to the left-trending groove with difficulty and continue to a corner. Climb the corner to a belay under the roof.
3) 4b, 28m. Move down and then traverse left to below the upper wall. Climb the superbly positioned slabby wall, slightly leftwards to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Agree Rockfax P2 description and topo incorrect. Climb left of the corner to belay below a ledge just up and left of the roof

βeta: If doing it again I'd take the wall left of the corner, not the rockfax line. Not much of a (hanging) belay under the roof!

βeta: Rockfax guidebook seems to show wrong line and belay for 2nd pitch, corner and hanging belay not used in old guides, perhaps go left?

Pitch 2 - corner should not be climbed and the belay is not under the roof. Climb the wall left of the corner and belay just under a ledge, to the left of the roof
