44m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Sections of good climbing on a snaking line up the slab to the left of the corner of The Armchair. Start at a layback crack directly under the corner of The Armchair.
1) 5a, 14m. Climb the layback crack with conviction and make tricky moves left and up into the base of the corner. Traverse left to ledges and belay.
2) 4c, 15m. Climb the slabby wall leftwards, and then up to a belay on a grassy ledge.
3) 4a, 15m. Traverse 10m rightwards to a steep black corner and finish up this on good holds. © Rockfax
