Rockfax Description
A popular easier line with some poor rock and vegetation on the first pitch. Start at the base of a low-angled broken rib, just right of a gully.
1) 50m. Climb the rib, passing vegetated ledges and some suspect rock, to a ledge and belay at the left-hand side of the crescent-shaped feature.
2) 15m. Traverse the narrow ledge right to a good belay and ledge where the crescent starts to curve upwards.
3) 25m. Climb easily up the clean path of rock above the belay to grass and scree which leads to Jack's Rake. © Rockfax

βeta: 60m rope needed to give a decent belay (if pitching) on P1. Good gear in the rock above old peg.
