Rockfax Description
A fine long pitch. Start at a lone bolt line that heads up the tallest section of the cliff. Climb with difficulty up the initial groove/wall to a ledge and continue to below the right end of the overhang at two thirds height. Take the leftwards leading line above the overhang to a lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
An engaging sustained climb, with an airy finish up the highest part of the wall. Good value.
Climb the right side of the shallow scoop, and wall above, past three bolt runners to a small ledge. Move up easily to the larger ledge above (bolt) then continue up the tricky slim ramp (bolt) to a bolt at the base of the prominent orange scar. Climb a short crack past a peg and a bolt until level with the right end of a narrow overhang. Clip a bolt just above then climb across and up left to better holds and a final bolt runner. Finish directly up to a new double ring abseil station at the end of the good rock.

Originally E2 5c (with three bolts). The line was retro-bolted in 2012.

G A Jenkin, A Tallant, direct start 12/6/1991 (indirect with M Ward, P Jarvis, 12/6/1991) 12/Jun/1991.

βeta: Suggest clipsticking the first bolt or having a pad, the start is polished and slippery. Really enjoyable climbing though.

βeta: First hangar came off during the climb. Nut pinged off into oblivion. Left the hangar on the shelf below the climb if anyone going has a spare nut.
