Marked on crag pic. 4 pitches of great slab climbing with some tricky moves over bulges. Mostly bolted but some trad needed. Can be done with a singe 60m rope.
Follow marked track from the back of the campsite for 2-3 minutes along base of hillside, look for the black fixed rope up the access shute.
