DescriptionThe climbing is sustained, but with a low technical threshold, and combined with some inspirational route finding provides a memorable experience.
Start below a beckoning flake above the left-hand end of the ledge-system. Climb the slab to reach the flake and follow it, with escalating difficulty, to its end. Pull through a bulge and move up into a scoop guarded by a black fang of rock. Pass the fang to its right into a second scoop and exit steeply leftwards to a black block (peg). Pull round the above into the base of a short black groove, which provides a suitably wild finale.
