Rockfax Description
A tremendous line that provides exciting climbing and positions.
Start from a ledge reached by easy scramble. Climb up to below the overhang and move right to below a thin crack. Move up the thin crack and make some tricky moves left to the arete. Follow the arete all the way to the top - airy and a bit runout. High in the grade. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climbs the superb blunt arete in the centre of the crag starting on the left under the overhang. Climb up and right to the arete, up cracks then back left onto the arete proper. Continue direct to the top, pausing for the obligatory guidebook shot on the way.
