Rockfax Description
A popular route. Start just right of Ledgend Direct.
1) 4c, 18m. Climb a short wall to a ledge, then move up rightwards to enter and follow a corner to an overhang. Go right to a ledge and belay.
2) 4a, 18m. Ascend a groove and flakes, then move right and up to a ledge. Pass another ledge and a small roof on the left. © Rockfax

βeta: Back up the gear as you get higher on the crack! Nut fell out as I was moving through the crux, pretty scary!

βeta: Last 5m of the 1st pitch was really tricky in my opinion. I lead the 2nd pitch and traversed left not right. Big mistake as the rock is loose in the extreme. BEWARE.

βeta: Bit harder then I expected, but I would say this was a lovely route and thought it was better then Legend Direct. When you get to the top of the crack and traverse across, it is awsom. The belay point is great for the view. I would recommend this route, but its a bit stiff for the grade.
