Looking up to the fore-shortened slab at the start...

Description 

P1 climbs grooves, trending right to reach the base of the upper slab (5.9-)

P2 moves left on to the slab, then follows the easiest line upwards, keeping left of the corner. Traverse left to a peg, and pass this, stepping up (crux; 5.10a/b) to reach better cracks near the arete. One of the best mid-grade slab pitches in Wales.

After P2 it is easiest to make one long (50 m) abseil from slings on a spike back to the start.

Location 

P2 takes a prominent slab in the centre of the cliff. Start directly below this.
