Description

Great rock, a little difficult to get up and going - there's a small shelf you need to lever yourself onto, crux is getting out of something of a bowl in the middle of the pitch.

Location

Just to the right of the corner on the far left of the site. See image.

Protection

Bolts all the way up. There's single soviet stake at the top and there are two new bolts either side behind it to set up an anchor. You can access this from above, but it's a little sketchy - would recommend setting up an anchor higher up, rappelling down and setting up a top rope that way. There's another pair of bolts a few meters shy of the stake, but not much point using that anchor!
