<< None < None | The Baldest > Finesse >>
Popular and well-protected climbing taking on the large flakes and cracks up the left side of the main wall. Well worth the walk and a good consolation should the other lines here prove too harsh. Start at the base of the main left to right line of weakness in the centre of the crag.</br>Gain the excellent right-facing layback crack either from the easy line of weakness, or direct via a couple of moves up the wall just to the left. The layback crack ends at a good ledge and a possible belay. From the ledge, move left and climb up the steep twin cracks above a small overlap. The left-hand crack gradually widens to hand width as height is gained and this is followed until just below the top, where a step left and then up is required to finish. The hand-crack has some grass in it but this does not get in the way of the climbing. Thread belays in blocks well back.
