10m. The centre of the face has a polished and perplexing start. It is pleasant above though the gear does not inspire.


Poorly protected. Pleasant solo for the experienced. Beginners may not agree.

Agree with Mike Green about protection, easy climbing though.

little gear of use (an ok in itial sling followed by two bad cams and nothing else until the top nearly). Climbing of about Diff standard other than that, I guess that's worth HVD as it's basically a solo.

I got a couple of cams in but neither were very confidence-ins[iring.
Having said that, I did it when damp and it still felt very easy climbing for vdiff, the start isnt perplexing at all.
I guess vdiff for the poor gear but otherwise low-end diff.

A pocket at mid height has clearly been used for alot of cams and is now becoming badly eroded.
