The right-hand line of the lower wall is another terrific face-climb. Start below ledges and a left-leaning corner under an overhang. Climb the gently overhanging wall on positive holds and finish up a flake-crack in the headwall. Stunning.

Long and sustained. The tat was useful!

the route was great but a bit greasy at the start

Classic route, but what a stupid, dangerous first bolt placement. As it's the easiest route in the area, people often go on it first when it's still greasy. Why has it got a potential death fall while going for the first clip?

John, the rock that held the first bolt parted company with the rest of the crag a couple of years ago...

Good holds all the way, just when you need them.
Until the thin top section which contrasts delightfully.
Gav McGrath - 27/Nov/04

There is currently (June '05) a gull's nest on the ledge about two thirds of the way up this route.

good climb. great hand holds quite stretchy on the legs.

Stretchy on the legs?

Take some small wires or a deep breath before going for the first bolt. Simple climbing but it feels a long way off the deck.
Matthew Webb - 30/Aug/06

alternatively you need some cojones!

Someone seems to have kindly added an extra bolt at the bottom so it all feels nice and friendly now! Super route.

The first bolt was replaced last autumn - it was missing for almost 10 years!
