Up easily to the first overhang (hex or friend), strenuously through this to easier ground which leads to the second roof, which is bypassed to the right - wires and maybe even an old bolt(?) protect the slabby 5.6 moves to gain a chimney to the top.


The obvious crack/fault up the middle of the West Wall.


Trad rack - big pieces and some larger wires.

In the 1980's Mark Goss and I went to climb this. Mark was on lead and, towards the top, got pretty badly stung by bees. All I heard was "ow! ow! ow!..." then I lowered him off.

No bees there now.
