Deceptively steep climbing with some exciting moments. Start at the base of a dark right to left-trending vein of rock with a small grassy hollow in it at 7m.</br>1) 4c, 22m. Climb up from the vein to gain the overhang capped recess just right of a short right-facing corner. Pull up past the overhang's right end and climb flakes and cracks to a ledge and belay next to a big pinnacle.</br>2) 4b, 20m. Move up cracks on the left of the pinnacle before breaking out left and continuing on up through the final overhangs.

Lovely route - so good we climbed it twice in a week, the second time in the rain. One of the best, and amazing value for VS 4c. 3 star for me
