Starts up discontinuous cracks to a horizontal leading right (gear protected).
Clip a few bolts up to the anchor. This pitch is 5.7 and may be called Blue Valentine. The second pitch tackles the steeper face above, fully bolt protected.


In the middle of the slab at the left side on the crag, a few metres right of a wide crack with a tree.


Bolts and a few pieces of gear, up to a .75 BD worked for me. A 70 is long enough to TR both pitches linked.
