Description 

This is a crag classic.

Climb up to the overhang, and traverse left on good but polished holds. Traverse up diagonally right, (old in situ pin), below a steep face on your left, until possible to step up left onto the slab above the steep face.

Move left and up across the slab to cracked blocks. Now follow the groove up to the right all the way to the top.


Location 

Just left of center is a large overhang at the foot of the wall. This climb starts up the left side of the overhang.
