The climb is pumpy but never too desperate. Very enjoyable moves form a consistent flow along the line.

One can also top-rope the 11b just to the right, which finishes at the same anchor.


There are two bolted lines at the highest point of the wall. It's the one of the left (on the right is a 11b).

This route and others in the area were affected by a landslip in early 2014 and are now unclimbable. Although the routes themselves are not affected, the ground level beneath them is now about 20ft lower and still unstable. Over time it will probably settle, and the routes could become climbable again with some cleaning and additional bolts at the bottom.
