Description 

Start up wide cracks and continue up cracks, chimneys and slabs. Several entertaining pitches, but it's hard to link shorter pitches together due to rope drag. Most entertaining if climbed with a large party of large men who only touch rock once very two years. The official UK grade is "V Diff" but some pitches seem very stiff for this grade. It would probably be Hard Severe in North Wales.

Location 

From the left side (looking out to sea) of the hotel drop down then follow a faint path rightwards to the start of the ridge.

Protection 

Standard rack, several long slings.
