Better protected and not as hard as it looks, this is a fantastic route tracing a line up the steep wall to the right. Above the mid-height crux, continue past a rest ledge to finish up a short groove to a tree. Abseil descent, do not lower around the tree.

Another soft E3 about 20 bits of gear in as many metres. but take care it's a bit scruffy at very bottom and very top

Great route - 3 stars in my book (and in several other guides). A bit of everything - pumpy to start, delicate to finish, good gear.

a great route. wonderful gear and nice clean face climbing, dirty lower down and higher but easy in these places. Will benefit from more traffic.
