Rockfax Description
The corner in the centre of the main face is a splendid and challenging route with a complex start. Start (as for Hostile Witness) on a flat-topped block below the left end of the huge overhang in the centre of the main face. Pull up rightwards to a crack in the face, below the centre of the huge overhang. Traverse left with feet just above the low overhang to the base of the corner. Direct to here makes the route Sev 4a. Follow the corner to an overhang, then move left to the easier continuation and take this past some saplings to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Gentle and well protected. Head up and slightly right to below the overhang, then hand traverses back left into the main groove.

βeta: A nice route. The start is a confidence tester at VD, We put a holding rope on to prevent a possible swing left, if any one came off there. No one did. :)

βeta: Stays wet for a very long time due to the shelter from the wind by the trees.
