14m. The classic of the crag, although protection could be better. From the grass ledge climb the groove to its end then step left and take the continuation all the way to the terrace and a tree belay.


Not a pushover for a classic easy route, bold and a bit tricky. And very good.

This would be a harrowing route for someone pushing up through this grade. Having said that, with a calm head, it is a mighty fine route worth every one of its three stars.

Bold to first gear, easy (but nice!) moves.

found gear all over this with loads of little friends (actually aliens) making it feel very easy and save vs!

Found good gear as well - nuts and hexs - at least 3, I'm sure. Definately a fine route.

Well protected and probably HS 4b.

The previous comments about this being well protected are bollocks. Any gear is too low down to be useful. Basically a solo.
