Rockfax Description

Tried a few variations on the crux and couldn't reach high enough. Really big move either way you do it. Would definitely be 5c for me if i could make it.

As a lanky person this felt very easy but was still a stretch. Though was surprised how poor the hold after the reach was. The rest of the climbing is an enjoyable romp on good rock. Had great fun!

Been building up to this for quite a while, was great to get it done. Initial overhangs were fun, the main move was great, had to wiggle my hand up from pebble to pebble. Got a bit pumped on the upper hvs section, but gear was great throughout. Much appreciated advice from below helped with the ropework and protection.
AlexxelA - Lead O/S - 28/May/12 with Sean, Stephen Connelly

E2 5c for me (170cm/5'6"). Up and down 5 times before committing to the massive reach to the poor slopers. Found an E3 6b easier at Birchens easier!Partly due to a really hot day. Brilliant route all the same though

Charley's awesome lead. Found this really hard for the short...was all fine other than the crux move up the slab which took me a million attempts before I managed it, but manage it I did. Step up with virtually nothing for hands...in the end it was all about getting the feet sorted out on the block, very balancy and hard for shorties.

Made me really tired, nice first section and the slab was quite committing! The top isn't easy either! Good lead Charley!

Enjoyed, quite varied climbing. The crux is awkward but getting feet up and using as much core tension as possible does wonders. The upper bit is quite tricky too, though well protected and there are a couple of good holds that aren't obvious at first. Very happy with this one.

Managed the crux on about the 6th attempt reaching up with the left hand. Bomber cam in the right hand hold. Mike followed up but reached up with his right hand with his left hand on the crimp. His way seemed to me to be a more committing and possibly unreversible move. Still found the top section tricky.

Followed Mike up this again, couldn't do it the first time, got it second attempt, it really is at my absolute stretch, wouldn't be happy leading it as I could so easily go wrong if I grab the wrong part its quite hard to recover from.

Nice, some tricky moves. Found the bottom bit fine, then the reach up a LONG way, but once you get your weight right its just about okay. Had to move further over left than I had thought in order to move up and right, odd. And it doesn't finish there. Some quite unexpected sustained moves lead up and right. Nice.

Matt's first E1. Only one HVS to his name (now downgraded to VS) so very brave! Matt took a big whipper, all gear came out apart from a single tri-cam. This was welded in good and proper. After two more falls he made it to the top. Nice one!

Jim tried first, having done it before, but he is now no longer tall enough. Used his approach, which coincides with Nick Smith's (below)and this worked OK. Seeing all the photo's now I suspect it may not be the best method!

No way was I anywhere near reaching the break, even with the crimps Nick used, so ended up using a high toe hook and a sidepull that put me horizontal for a second but seemed to work!

a great route. positive holds but interesting moves to the slap. then a reach to crips from the side pull. never difficult but sustains interest throughout.

Well reachy at the crux but good pro. Sort of climb where I wonder how I did it afterwards. Onsight spurs you on, as does copious amounts of chalk!
