A good climb - interesting and varied. Start below blocks leaning against the face four metres left of 'Hermes'. A bit harder now the top block has gone.

  1. 25 metres - Up the blocks, then an awkward move to gain a crack. Continue up a ramp to a ledge. Scary climbing up the slab above; leftwards at first then straight up to a tree in the chimney.

  2. 30 metres - Continue up past some dubious rock and a large wedged flake to a niche on the left. A short V-corner leads to a large ledge.

  3. 35 metres - Climb to the top of a huge leaning flake with some trepidation, then step onto the face and continue up scoops to the top of the Fearon Block. Finish as for 'Fearon'.
