Rockfax Description
The best route of this grade in the valley and well worth the walk up. Bridge up the superbly-positioned groove with the feeling that the entire world is beneath your feet. There is a thread belay at the top. © Rockfax

βeta: Great route! Loads of gear, a bit pumpy if you hang around too long

βeta: The entire left hand arete is precariously balanced in a block the size of an a4 sheet of paper which is not attached at all. Only a matter of time before the entire arete disappears down the hill. Be VERY careful

βeta: Not sure about the integrity of blocks on left side of groove/ tower. Try to avoid pulling or stepping on if at all possible, until nearer the top.

βeta: Quite a classic really. Well situated and more technically satisfying than the standard limestone VS 4c corner crack. Don't look too closely at what is supporting the left arete, though...
