A fine climb following the line of the old abseil descent. Scramble up left to ledges under the face.
1) 5, 40m. Climb up the face, which gradually eases, to the lowest abseil bolts on a large ledge system.
2) 6a, 50m. Cross the ledges then continue up the steep face, passing one abseil point, to belay on a higher one.
3) 6a+, 30m. A fine sustained pitch to a tiny ledge and belay.
4) 5+, 30m. Finish directly up the face to the chains on the rim of the wall.

No hangers March 2007. Would probably be dangerous to climb the line unless you were SURE no-one else was on the crag to abseil onto you as there is loose rock at the top and at one of the stances, there are a couple of small stances and it's hard to avoid falling rope on what's probably the most common way off.

December '07 - still no hangers. I doubt if they will be replaced on what is proably a very busy ab. route. Shame - looks like truly great climbing.

Went to abseil off this route but only 1 bolt in top anchor, the other one missing.There is old tat there, but locals that were climbing warned us that the rest is unsafe to use now, so walked off around the other side with them.

Tried to abseil down this route. It is rebolted! Looks great. However, someone has removed the descent anchors. DO NOT DESCENT THIS ROUTE. Climb it insterad :-).
