A classic line up the steep and often gritty corner. Good <br/>climbing but it is best avoided after (and probably during) wet <br/>weather. It can be climbed by secure squirming or rather bolder laybacking. Large gear helps to protect.

Filty, even after 2 weeks of hot sunny weather! As the BMC guide says, "it's a classic (of it's kind!)". And it's kind is an old fashioned fight, which would be easy in hobnailed boots!
