Description:© (willmonks)

A nice word, paddock: very evocative. Not a bad climb either. A #4 cam would be handy on the final pitch.

Start: Start below the above-noted alcove (about 50m R of Cerambycid).

  1. 30m (14) Scramble up into the alcove and traverse out L along a narrow ledge to below the crack. Pull steeply into crack and up crack until it fades. Continue into the flake crack above to belay on a small ledge, about level with the top of the buttress to the R.

  2. 20m (14) Move to the L end of the belay ledge and follow the line to an area of fragile rock that leads to a terrace at 20m, below the L edge of an awning-like overhang.

  3. 15m (14) Up steeply just L of the overhang. Step back R above overhang and go up to next terrace. Traverse 5m L to belay below chimney/corner.

  4. 10m (14) Climb steeply up L wall of corner.
