The rightward-slanting crack into the corner. The corner itself provides a trickier-than-expected finish.

The hardest of the crag's VS 4cs by some way.

This is a cracker, you can stuff gear in everywhere so go for it, cause the top is a bit tricky but great!, this is like a mini scavenger at Gower but without the polish!

I found the crack tricky, positive footholds are few and far between and the crack is becoming polished. Handy ropes around the tree at the top tho.

Great route, albeit a bit polished. Possibly 5a but stacks of gear throughout

A polished horror.
