A classic outing taking the central line of the buttress with some devious moves. Start on the large ledge gained by a scramble up the gully/chimney.
1) 4b, 22m. Climb the groove, taking the left branch until you reach a niche 2m below the capping roof. Arrange some gear and make a balancy move back right to regain the main groove-system and belay almost immediately on a small ledge below a steepening.
2) 4a, 22m. Follow the corner-crack which soon slabs off and leads up to a large ledge and block belay.
3) 4b, 20m. Step down from the belay and pull left onto the steep wall. Stand up and get established in the small groove, before traversing left on good holds to the base of another groove. Follow this up to a ledge. Belay over left on the tree. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
Its a lovely climb but the rock is pretty rotten on pitch 3, with some really loose large blocks which unfortunately also look like lovely inviting hand holds! Not hard, just a little scary because of this.
