Dartmoor's enduring classic - sustained and engrossing on perfect rock. Start at a short pillar below a steep flake crack.
1) 5b, 16m. Climb the short pillar to beneath the bulging and rounded flake crack. Forceful moves into and up the crack are then followed by a delicate and technical traverse right to a hanging belay on nuts and a tied-off chickenhead.
2) 5a, 20m. Traverse a short way rightwards and climb a flake crack and the insecure drainpipe above to easier slab climbing and the summit. © Rockfax
