Rockfax Description
An outstanding wall-climb that rates as one of the best pitches in the West Country. Start at the base of a right to left diagonal line of quartz cracks.
Climb the diagonal cracks until it is possible to move up the wall to another left-trending crack. Follow the crack left until below a thin crack-line that heads up back right. Climb the thin cracks, peg, to a break and another peg before finishing steeply leftwards along the break. © Rockfax

βeta: The pegs were in ok nic. Bring an eight foot sling and old crab so you can put round the obvious solid boss at the top and simply lower off. Saves the faff of finding a belay and then abbing

βeta: This is an awesome an intricate line. Some say E5 6b, some E5 6a. Personally, I think it is E5 6a as my eyes weren't too far out on stalks as I did the crux. Good gear where it is needed. Certainly harder than Fay.
