Description 

A gem well-hidden by all the surrounding rhododendrons. Starts with about 25' of squeeze chimney to a good rest, though the top section remains steep.

Graded Severe in the 1960s and E1 5a currently!

Location 

This is one of the first pieces of rock found when walking from the lefthand side of the crag.

Protection 

Very wide gear useful for the start but traditionally done without!
