Description

A stunning route up the impressive corner to the right of the headwall. On the first ascent Peter led the final pitch and fell most of the way down the wall from what is still the free crux, entering the upper groove. After much bad language he completed the pitch. Starts above an ash tree on a grassy hump below the centre of the crag.

P1) Climb the broken groove until a short groove is climbed up to the right to a ledge and belay below a groove on the left, 5.6, 70'

P2) Climb the wall for about 20' to a pro piton then up an Overhanging crack right of a mass of ivy. Straight up the left to piton belays below the final corner. Climb the corner direct,and finish up the difficult groove.
