Description:

An exposed and polished trade route. 1) 100ft Scramble up from below The Gates and across to the base of Left Wall. 2) 70 ft Up a short crack to an obvious slightly downward left traverse. Then a rib leads to the 'Forest'. 3) 70 ft Up and left to a crack. Up this to a ledge on the left, then up diagonally left, across a slab (a bit polished) to a manky stance. 4) Climb the crack and finish up easy slabs.

Descent Options:

Please walk round. Don't put the rope round trees. There may be tat round some trees, use that at your own risk.

5 out of 5 stars solo

A classic and well used route, with great traverses, cracks and all kinds of fun things to do. The rock was dry, so the polished bits didn't cause a problem, but I bet in the wet they will be fun. Down climbed the route.
