A beautifully-situated first pitch that takes on the left edge of the prominent black slab in the centre of the cliff. Start directly below a large spike at 8m.
1) 26m. Climb up cracks on the right side of the large spike and stand on its top. Pull onto the base of the black slab and climb it on plentiful holds just to the right of the blunt arete. Belay below the right-hand end of the large overhang.
2) 17m. Traverse the foot ledge beneath the large overhang leftwards to a grassy bay and finish up the wide, easy-angled gully.
FA. Colin Kirkus, P.Fallows 3.8.1938
