Rockfax Description
The most popular route on the crag with some great positions. The cracks to the right of the corner lead awkwardly and steeply to a ledge. Trend right up the wall to a spike and a superb exposed finish on sloping holds. A tiny left-hand finish is also possible to extend the pleasure a bit. © Rockfax

βeta: Went up on lead but didn't fancy it after using all my lead strength on Tody's Wall, downclimbed and Pete did the lead.

βeta: I'd say the initial cracks are just about 4b, but it seems to be well protected and an absolutely cracking route

βeta: Thought the initial steepish crack moves were worth 4b; the rest is nicely exposed but easy.
