Rockfax Description
Excellent with good climbing after a slightly bold feeling start. Trend right up a grey slab then left to reach a vague crack (the same point can be reached from further right as well). Climb the crack up black rock studded with minerals, then traverse right across the slab above to reach a groove with a tree up which the route finishes. © Rockfax

βeta: Excellent route, quite tough and the gear is only just adequate enough in the first half.

βeta: Done it today. Some good climbing in a slightly wandering route. I didn't find the start hard. 2 stars maybe.

βeta: Not sure where the 5b move (the start?) is but this climb is superb throughout. Highly recommended.

βeta: Excellent indeed and worth three stars therefore. Better than it looks.
