Rockfax Description
An impressive pitch on great rock and with very sustained climbing, although the protection is less than comforting. Start at a thin right-trending crack below a tiny vertical corner at 10m.
Make thin moves up the crack to an easing. Follow the line of intermittent thin cracks 3m right of the tiny vertical corner to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Quality E1 climbing on reasonable rock. Protection is hard won and lots of small wires. Micro-wires required for mid-height crux (5b) and these have to be got wherever you can find them as they tend to be flush to the rock (that’s Culm rock remember!). I think you would be ground swooping if these were to fail. Despite this it is well worth the trouble, but just take care.
