Rockfax Description
Climb the slab left of the shallow groove then step left and make a fierce, fingery mantelshelf to better holds and an uphill finger-traverse to ledges. One more scary move remains. A super-technical left-hand start is around f7A+. © Rockfax

FA. Pete Livesey 1977.

βeta: Easy E4, one trickyish move at 15ft, and then a path to the top. Pex 5b, maybe 5c tops ;)

βeta: How do most people finish this route? Do you traverse into LJ's at the top or do you do the direct finish as described in the old Froggatt guide?
