This climbs up the arching line in the middle of the central section. The climbing is on excellent pink granite.

1. Climb up the corner on the left of the buttress to enter a groove which takes you to the top of the buttress.

2. Climb up broken slabs and corners to the base of the good looking pink corner.

3. Climb up the impressive corner.

4. From the top of the corner climb up to the top of the cliff.


Climb the pink corner that overlooks a large corner on its left.


Trad Gear.

Corners can be wet for a long period after heavy rain hence one of the reasons the crag is great in the winter.
