UKC

55m, 2 pitches. From the stance of Guytha climbs up and left easily to a niche. Move right with difficulty onto an exposed prow. Scary, unprotected moves up this to a welcome finishing hold.

Probably F Bennett et al 1967.

βeta: To get off, we downclimbed a couple of metres from the big top platform and headed a few metres north (right looking out) towards the top of Zelda. There’s a couple of small ash trees among the bushes which have tat and maillon which were good when we used them. The ash are suffering from dieback so may not be long for this world but were well enough rooted for my bulk at the time. The book recommends a walk off past Zelda.
