Description:© (kieranl)

Major line. The mossy poorly protected face at about 40 metres detracts from things.

Start: Start as for 'Tourist Direct'

  1. 41m (-) Climb the first two pitches of 'Tourist Direct'

  2. 33m (-) Corner to difficult exit right around the roof at the top. Up 5 metres to small stance on right and old carrot bolt (as for Tourist Direct). In the past people belayed here but it is much safer to continue. Climb the face on the left to the overhang. Up the corner, largely by its left wall to a big jammed block. Go left around the block and up through scrub above.

  3. 15m (-) Climb a small overhang and go up easily into the chimney.

  4. 18m (14) Chimney up 3 metres and out onto triangular ledge (ancient PR). Move back into the corner and go up into the smooth V chimney. Struggle up this and move left as soon as possible into an unlikely-looking shallow groove and go up to a ledge.

  5. 18m (-) Go Up.
