Description:

Starts level with pitch 1 of "Staircase" in a scruffy recess above a cave.

  1. 12m (12): Ascend the recess

  2. Walk left along the ledge to the right to the right of "Fountain Crack"

  3. 19m (12): Climb up the face on good, hard white rock.

  4. 19m (15): Climb an overhanging crack with an awkward take-off. At the top, traverse left onto a bushy ledge.

  5. 28m (16): Climb up on the corner and traverse across the face to the right past the top of pitch 4, and then up and to the right to a point above the corner of the large overhang, where there is a small resting place. From here climb straight up to a very small stance. The awkward move is near the top.

  6. 9m (14): Starting slightly to the left of the top of the last pitch, a delicate movement up left leads to a grassy recess which is followed to the top.
