Description:

Use the common start for the lefthand routes. From this go rightwards up a shallow groove onto a ledge in a corner. Traverse right over a flake then up to another large ledge. Traverse left into a corner. This is the crux of the route. Move up the 'detached' polished flake with difficulty. After 10ft the going gets easier to the top.

Descent Options:

Rappel down either eastern or western gullies, fixed rap points usually in place.

4 out of 5 stars led

After the queue for pitch one the route justified the wait. The grooves were just delicate enough to keep interest. The hand traverse was spectacular. The start of the final pitch is very polished. I passed it by a huge bridgeing move beyond where the rock was very polished. This pitch will eat cams as the cracks widen inwards
