Rockfax Description
A super sustained pitch with good protection available. Belay on some pegs in a thin crack towards the far end of the ledge. Climb up the crack to a horizontal band of red rock. Pull over at a jug and get established at the next horizontal break. Fine climbing up slim grooves and crack leads to the upper horizontal break. Push on up through the bulge above (care with holds) to access the upper corner/groove that is followed all the way to the top and the belay/abseil station. © Rockfax

βeta: There are currently two gull chicks on the ledge just below the final roof/groove. Would recommend waiting a couple of weeks for them to leave if you don't want to disturb them and get attacked by their parents (as I did..).
