UKC

34m.

Rockfax Description
A tremendous line and climb. Start at the appealing full height groove behind the massive yew tree. Climb the very sustained groove in its entirety. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The obvious full-height groove in the centre of the Right Hand buttress, which some consider tough for 4b. The crack will swallow as much gear as you care to place.

There's a tree with abseil tat at the top, but it's often quicker to abseil off the larger tree to the left (assuming nobody is on Cadillac) or can you walk off (with care, belay recommended).

F Cannings, P R Littlejohn, G Morgan 14/Feb/1970.

βeta: There's a section lower down where you have to go out left a little, lay-back and then step back right into the crack.

βeta: Very polished and difficult to retrieve gear. Gear is bomber wherever you place it.
