<< None < None  |  Smee > Wendy >>


Start at a slab with bulges.
1) 5, 35m. Follow the slab on the right side of the overhangs (2 pegs). An awkward bulge leads to easier climbing and then on to a big ledge with a tree.
2) 3, 15m. Scramble to the top of the ledge and traverse horizontally right to the ledge at the start of Peter Pan and Wendy. Not in current guidebook.

I climbed in the crack by the overhangs, sticking with these to the top only felt like VS- it also provided protection which was much better than my other 2 outings on this crag. The series of bulges were not particularly challenging in themselves, using the crack for pro I think the grade is about a VS.

We just thought it was better climbing up the slab than in the crack in the corner, I reckon its worth its HVS grade then.
