A long pitch up the slab to a groove. Continue up the rib (crux) then move out left, then back right behind a pinnacle to the abseil bolts. Protected by old threads, bolts and a jammed knot - take a rack to back the gear up.
Descent - Abseil to the left (looking down) - 34m to the deck.

'A pair of abseil bolts'? Last year there was definitely only one but perhaps they've added a second. Quite good climbing up to about half height, just above the crux, the rest is much easier and rather pointless.

We thought this one of the best single pitch 5's we have ever climbed, ignore the previous comments, this is the mutt's nuts!!!, fun fun fun all the way.

A very good long pitch, with excellent climbing all the way, but its worth taking a bit of trad gear to supplement some of the old threaded runners.

i thought this was the best grade 5s i climed all week, with interesting climbing the whole way. The threads have seen better days and one of the bolts has had the hanger removed but still gets a thumbs up from me.
