Description:

Start in the bottom edge of the gully, climb a short corner/chimney. Carry on up the corner to a peg belay. Move out of the corner onto the blunt arete and continue until the rock ends and turns to grass. Carefully climb the very steep grass to belay off a small shrub. The grass section will be very dangerous in wet weather and rock shoes

Descent Options:

Continue up the grass to the footpath.

3 out of 5 stars Led

The first pitch is awkward and has dirty ledges in it. The second pitch is on clean rock in a great position. After the end of the second pitch is 'the grass', steep, slippery and unavoidable.
