Rockfax Description
One of the best single pitch climbs on this section of the cliff. Start below a thin crack-line just right of the low recess at the base of Simian. Make some hard, technical starting moves up the thin crack and continue to an overhang. Move left to below a steep corner and climb this to an interesting exit rightwards on some amazingly high friction rock. Take the long narrow corner more easily to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: One of the glue in bolts has pulled out of the anchor ⅔ of the way up. Recommend avoiding and continuing to the tree at the top instead.

βeta: My first VS in Avon. Felt a bit spooky at times, but is well protected. Lots of small nuts at the start. The mantle exit from the overhanging corner is defiantly the crux, but the friction IS good, surprisingly. 3 bolts (2 of which are 'new') at the top.
