A fabulous single-pitch, fully loaded with a great deal of excellent and varied climbing. Start beneath the large corner/groove at the base of the face.
35m. Follow the blank corner/groove to ledges before heading right along a break to the base of a scoop. A few difficult moves up the right-hand side of the scoop, peg, gain the base of a right-leaning groove which leads to a ledge and easier ground.

The protection in the scoop is a bolt not a peg. The route is good value for E1.

Very absorbing! I found it quite amenable for E1, although the gear is spaced. Scoop section seems like the crux.
