Rockfax Description
The right-hand line of the lower wall is another terrific face-climb. Start below ledges and a left-leaning corner under an overhang. Climb the gently overhanging wall on positive holds and finish up a flake-crack in the headwall. Stunning. © Rockfax

βeta: Classic route, but what a stupid, dangerous first bolt placement. As it's the easiest route in the area, people often go on it first when it's still greasy. Why has it got a potential death fall while going for the first clip?
