Rockfax Description
The superb blank groove can be approached from a short way up Edge Lane by a tricky traverse (5c), a pile of stones or a f6C problem. The crucial upper section has an old cemented peg runner in the right wall, between the two cruxes. Finish using a tiny chipped hold. From the terrace continue up the easy corner, or abseil carefully from the big chipped spike on the left. The super direct start is f7B. © Rockfax
