UKC

87m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Popular and varied climbing that improves with height gained. Start in the left-facing corner below a block overhang at 10m.
1) 4b, 17m. Climb up to the block overhang and pull over its left side on good holds. Move up to a bolted belay just above the level of the Central Ledge.
2) 4a, 20m. Head up behind the belay to a corner/groove and follow it past an overhang and then up right to a tree belay.
3) 4c, 20m. Move left and head up to and past a break to a thin crack. Continue on good holds to a dark grey slab. Climb the slab past a horizontal finger ledge to a peg under a slight overlap and pull over this on a good hold to finish on the Great Ledge. © Rockfax

βeta: 30ish Kg Block blew out by the base of the tree belay at Pitch one, today. Tree now a bit suspect as a belay point. Still climbable at about the same grade though. Just be extra careful.
