Start at a small corner, 15m left of the huge block sat under the roof. Unusually thuggy climbing.</br>1) 4c, 15m. Climb the corner to a ledge at the fault-line.</br>2) 5b, 20m. Climb the crack above then undercut the long roof rightwards to an exposed exit groove (thread). Finish up this.

The second pitch is mind blowing go and do it!

great route. continuously good climbing all the way to the usual choss at the top! very pumpy second pitch - don't look down!

Second pitch certainly merits 2 stars, some pretty mean thrutching combined with 'character building' exposure makes it one to remember (if only it could be longer!).
