Rockfax Description
A route of contrasts - the start is very hard for the short. Swing out right to jugs and a ledge on the front face. Move up awkwardly then step left on to the narrow side face and climb this delicately by lovely moves in great positions. © Rockfax

Found the start easy as I like swinging around from big holds. Had a bit of a mare on the rest of it as I struggled to commit to the slopers, and didn't have enough cams to give me confidence. Ended up using a textbook 'stacked nuts' in one of the breaks, so at least there's that...

Found the start a bit bold as I didn't place gear until the ledge, but apparently if you can hang around you can get some mid traverse

The Celt 06/Oct/13 2nd dog

The 1st part for me was a nightmare for both me and my climbing partner.As my partner was leading as im new to the outdoor climbing ,he found it hard to get the second hold as he is short and the jug under the roof was polished so he kept slipping and falling,in the end he maged to get it and heel hook to get the cam in, and off he went to the top,when I got started my problem was he put the second cab in the second hold where my fingers needed to go,I was trying desperatly to get me fingers in just after it but the reach even for me was too much so i cut loose swang to the arete and somehow climbed that and then had to hang down again and scream and strugle to get the cab out,then climb back up to where the rest spot was.After that I proceded up an enjoyable clmb,loking back i did enjoy swinging out to get anouther route up,but im not sure a swing out to something else is aloud lol,I had to pedulum in the end haha. Great climb next time i hope my friend moves the cab more to the right.

Great fun. Cannot believe that we have not tried this before. The first move up and across to the horizontal flake was straight from my climbing wall repertoire. The upper slab opens up surprisingly to reveal some can-friendly breaks with lovely rough rounded moves and the odd flakey crimp in between.
