<< None < None | The Baldest > Finesse >>
Popular and well-protected climbing taking on the large flakes and cracks up the left side of the main wall. Well worth the walk and a good consolation should the other lines here prove too harsh. Start at the base of the main left to right line of weakness in the centre of the crag.
Gain the excellent right-facing layback crack either from the easy line of weakness, or direct via a couple of moves up the wall just to the left. The layback crack ends at a good ledge and a possible belay. From the ledge, move left and climb up the steep twin cracks above a small overlap. The left-hand crack gradually widens to hand width as height is gained and this is followed until just below the top, where a step left and then up is required to finish. The hand-crack has some grass in it but this does not get in the way of the climbing. Thread belays in blocks well back.
