A top-class route with a thrilling finale. Start below the left-hand end of a diagonal roof at 18m, below a steep crack.
1) 4a, 25m. Move up to the steep crack, which in turn gives access to a rightward traverse on pocketed rock beneath the large roof (often wet). Belay at the ledges known as The Forest.
2) 4b, 24m. Traverse out leftwards onto the steeper wall for a few metres to reach the superb corner-crack and follow it to an exciting last move.
FA. (Dives) J.M.Edwards 17.5.1933
