Climb The Corner then step right and climb the slab rightwards to a jug. Pull up to the overhang, traverse right and finish up the short face of the rocking block. A finish on the left is harder.

Really quite a good route, maybe 2 stars with the direct start up the arete which any sensible person should do. The block finish isn't nearly as foul as one might think.

Crux is a real teaser. Very good route though, especially with the direct start. Well named - take a camera, for that sought after picture of your mate looking like a beached whale....

moves upto the block are great and the pitch contrasts really well. Found the move over the block quite awkward

yeah the contrast is great loved the rising traverse on side pulls nice route, E2 in th wind bloody hell nearly got pulled off it!

Nice moves, the top seemed contrived as you could walk off with more ease than that top out, still fun though!
