Rockfax Description
A line and a half! The overhang-strewn corner requires a wide range of manoeuvres and, although polished to a high sheen, it is still a classic outing. Start at the base of the corner.
1) 4b, 9m. Squirm up the awkward wide crack to a cave belay.
2) 4b, 13m. Back-and-footing and bridging gains the start of a short traverse left on a hanging slab. Move left along the slab and up through a small overhang above it to a stance.
3) 9m. The narrowing-corner above ends at a stout tree belay. © Rockfax

βeta: Great route needs a bit of thinking yes it’s polished but doesn’t really cause any issues.

βeta: A great route in the wet. An variation on the second pitch goes right at the overhang, up and back left again to the stated belay. Very funny and stays dry in all but the hardest sideways rain.
