The first few moves are a Baggy legend. Start by abseiling, or down climbing, the descent ridge to a small ledge about 12m above the base of the zawn. Opposite is a small flat downward pointing spike that touches the edge of the overhanging zawn wall.
1) 4c, 20m. Not a pitch for the short! Fall across the zawn to reach the spike and pull across on good holds. Move steeply up to the edge of the slab and pull around onto it. Move right and slightly upwards to a peg before traversing 7m right, either high or low, to a stance on a small sloping red/brown ledge. Belay on good wires.
2) 4b, 34m. Reverse the traverse back left to the peg, and climb up above it heading for a square-cut flake. Before reaching the flake, move leftwards on the best rock and then take the cleanest line above with care to the top'. © Rockfax
