Rockfax Description
Fine climbing that is sustained and well protected. Start in the back of the zawn behind a large fallen block, near the base of a diagonal crack as for The Viper. Climb through a bulge to reach a crack. Traverse right for a few metres to reach a groove and climb this to a small ledge. Continue up the steep corner-crack above until you meet some stiff resistance. Dig deep and make some scary moves right until you are below a steep wall. Move up this on better holds to a small overhang and some much-needed gear. Move over the overlap via the crack, and then undercut out right to gain the base of the main corner, which is followed more easily to the top. © Rockfax
