The most obvious crack line in the central part of the crag, veering left out of a grimmer vegetated line. Retrobolted in the early 2000s, the hangers were subsequently stripped leaving a line of hangerless studs next to the crack line.

Begin up the crack on good incut holds to a blank section (can protect with wire nut cinched over hangerless bolt) where a step left on thin holds and a few face moves gain the upper crack system.


Most obvious crack line in the central part of the cliff.

A trail runs around to climber's right and can be used for descent


Gear to 3" plus hangerless bolt studs. Bolts at top possibly hangerless. Can use long slings to anchor off trees 10m back from cliff edge.

This route (if it is what I think it is) is bolted and there are currently hangers on the bolts.
