A worthwhile climb, however the finish is very unstable and a pre-placed rope should be left down the final slope. The finish is found 5 fence posts west of the 3rd wall, where a gap through the gorse leads to stakes on the right. Run the rope over a semi-buried boulder in the top of the slope. Start at a pointed boulder.
1) 4b, 17m. Climb the short rounded arete and then move up and right to a corner which is followed to the fault-line.
2) 4c, 18m. Move back left to the corner and climb to a roof. Traverse right carefully to a ledge on the arete. Traverse back left over the roof to another ledge and climb the groove above (peg).
