The middle finger-crack leads to the cave - worthwhile at solid HVS 5b. A tricky traverse left and technical wall gain a ledge on the arete. Trend rightwards more easily to finish.

the belay is a bit worse than 'indifferent', better to clip it with an 8ft sling and do the route as one pitch.

I wouldn't risk hanging my hamster from that belay.

Very pleasant climbing. You can get a Friend 2.5 at foot level in the cave at the top of the Oxford Street to back-up the very poor belay. Small wires useful for the top wall. A lovely outing, low in the grade.

All a bit scary and intrepid from the cave. Tough moves getting established out left & to top out at the ledge
Cragrat Rich - 11/Jun/08

A really worthwhile route when done in 1 pitch
craig devonshire - 21/Jul/08

Good varied route when done as a big pitch. The hard section is short lived with a rewarding and exposed top wall. A good contender for a first E2 if you are good on your feet
