Rockfax Description
Follow the right-hand crack. It gives good finger-jamming and all the difficulties are well protected. A good first VS, solid but safe and full of interest. © Rockfax

very wet and windy, but did a route before run off to go sports climbing.

Mine and Kate's first VS lead! Kate led first (and it started raining heavily but she did it!), a friend abseiled and cleaned the route and then I led. Great first VS I'd recommend. I'm a very cautious and risk averse climber but even I managed to do it..

Definite finger/knuckle jam move, very solid, but I worried afterwards if I had slipped would I have left my knuckle behind ? Then this followed by laybacking on the arete and rocking over.

philgeorge999 18/Apr/10 2nd O/S

I didn't quite top out as there was a nice looking cave about 3 feet from the top which I went in and had a nice walk up to the belay stance.

Very scary around the overhang. Traversed over to LH crack at that point, but couldn't get any more protection in, and couldn't get any hold better than a foot jam. Had to retreat!
