Description:© (kieranl)

Very entertaining. Just be aware that at times you have to climb on large apparently detached blocks.

Start: Start 1 metre left of the big dead tree.

  1. 40m (9) Slabby thin crack on left side of buttress to ledge. Step right and pull through bulge then straight up to huge ledge.

  2. 40m (9) Behind are twin V cracks up the right side of the buttress. It is usual to move staright up from the ledge and then move across right and climb the right-hand crack but either crack is OK. An optional third pitch is to climb the blade of rock at the end of the second pitch.
