Rockfax Description
Pumpy climbing on good rock and gear. Start below a corner 5m right of Brant. Make a tricky move up and right from the base of the corner to reach the spike on the right arete. Follow the arete to gain the crack above the first small roof and follow this and the confusing wall to a semi-rest under the small roof at 16m. Gird your loins and tackle the roof (crux) and steep crack above. Speed is your friend as the pump builds. A final tricky move at the top of the crack leads to easier ground and the belay.
