Rockfax Description
Start at a vegetated looking crack system that rises past the right side of an overhang to below a deep V-shaped groove.
1) 4b, 24m. Follow the crack system past the right side of an overhang to a belay under the conspicuous V-shaped groove.
2) 4c, 25m. Ascend the deep V-groove and at its end move right to below a narrowing slabby wall. Follow this to a point where a traverse to the left can be made around the arete to a belay.
3) 4c, 30m. The crack above is tough to get going, and leads to the continuation chimney above that is followed to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: This climb is a bit of a brute! Pitches 2 & 3 both brought Debbie out in tears. She's my personal HVS detector.
