Outstanding line following the large corner at the left of the main slab face. The corner itself eats protection, while the cruxes come in the bold 'scoop' groove to gain the corner, and the delicate traverse out right at the top.

Descent Options:

Traverse right once you hit the grassy ledge, avoiding the headwall, and walk to the right end of the crag to descend. Take care of loose rocks falling on climbers below.

5 out of 5 stars stunning line

lovely fluid climbing up the corners and slabs. Be sure to escape right at the top, rather than trying to push though the headwall (like me, Mr Numpty)
