Follow the rock south. The wide corner crack with the large arching roof section. Follow the crack up and through the roof, being careful not to use your big gear too early, then mantle onto the ledge for a trad belay. [Pro CD, W] Climb the obvious corner up to a cosy ledge and lower off, a rope stretching 25m abseil gets you back down. Trying to combine both pitches as one as on the first ascent, only results in hideous rope drag. [Pro CD, W] First pitch is a little tricky because of a tree. Clear sailing after that!

Descent Options:

2 pitch rappel
