Description:

Climb the corner of the arch past 3 bolts then veer right onto the face then traverse horizontally across the wall about 2m below the roof. Belay on a small ledge on the right hand end of the face. The crux is the first few moves and there is a difficult move gaining the belay ledge. DBC belay and 25m abseil to ground. (Pro: 9 bolts)

5 out of 5 stars thanks Bryce

Great climb. totally classic. I have never hurt my fingers in that way before. It's a lot harder if your fingers are thick, like mine are, as you will have nothing to put in the tiny crack at the start.
