270m. (Hair of the Dog) A long line that links a series of cracks and grooves up the left-hand edge of the tallest part of the cliff. It has some long pitches and sustained climbing.</br>1) 6, 40m. Trend left into the base of the groove and climb it (peg) to a small stance.</br>2) 6, 40m. Continue up the groove (peg) then move left to a bolt then back right to a long crack. Climb this to a belay.</br>3) 5, 50m. A continuation crack leads to easier ground where cracks and grooves lead to the large grass ledge (on Descent 2).</br>4) 6, 50m. Climb cracks past the right side of an overlap then trend right and climb the long crack to its end. Move left and back right to a ledge with blocks at the base of a groove.</br>5) 6, 50m. Climb the groove, and its continuation, until an exit to the right is possible. Move right (grassy) then climb right again to the base of a good crack. This is most easily reached from the right and leads to a belay at a horizontal break. </br>6) 5, 40m. A short crack leads to easy ground then the ridge.
