Rockfax Description
Brean Down's classic trad line is a serious undertaking. The climbing is both sustained and on variable quality rock. The pitch can be split at the big ledge at 9m. Start below the corner. Gain the large horizontal break and ledge at 8m via the narrow corner and wall. Ascend the sustained continuation corner to an exit up the final vegetated crack. Stake belays and additional belays in the rock outcrops further up the slope. © Rockfax

βeta: Horribly loose, surely an XS until thoroughly cleaned? Topping out the natural line is currently made impossible by dense vegetation.
