Description:© (kieranl)

Good, varied climbing. Take some large hexes for the second pitch as the cams tend to walk their way open in a couple of spots.

Start: Start at the thin crack on the right wall of the gully.

  1. 15m (15) 'Excellent' finger layback crack on right wall of gully. Gear is excellent but pumped desperate leaders have run it out in the past and taken large falls.

  2. 35m (15) Up the widening crack and left across the sickle into 'Holpyp'. Up over the roof and carry on.
