Description:© (kieranl)

Great climbing but the crux groove leading to the overhangs has loose blocks and poor protection.

Start: Short crack below the corner marking the left side of the grey wall (as for 'Mr Pye' and Shibboleth).

  1. 15m (18) Good moves up the short, thin crack then go diagonally left to the foot of the grrove leading to the middle of the roof.

  2. 40m (19) Groove to roof (loose rock, runout). Corners above roof lead to long ledge with old bolts (relics of an attempt on first ascent of Pall Bearer).

  3. 40m (17) Into corner on left (rotten rock), step right into another crack and up to small ledge (may still be a dead tree here). Corner, flake and groove to top (this last little bit was the finish of Shady Aid)
