Rockfax Description
10m. The centre of the wall gives a classic pitch, sustained climbing on generally good holds leads to the highest break, then move left and sprint up the flake to the top. © Rockfax

Soloed a few times over past 20 yrs, gear unlikely to hold.

went up with gear, realised there was none, climbed back down, soloed :)

Tried soloing a few times but got pumped and downclimbed, then we found an OK cam to protect the crux which made it easier to commit to.

Down climbed from second break which was probably harder than continuing.... No gear where I'd hoped and sandy holds at the top with a leg breaker of a fall. 5c felt fair.

Really pleased, and not quite as hard as I'd expected. Just high!

Got 7 meters up and figured that this would be a solo and not a lead! Got to the break after the undercling then had to jump off due to a worried Belayer and lack of gas due to hanging around trying to look for placements. Will return with a bouldering mat i think!!

got much higher than last time, bottled it twice at the hold above the last break. although jumping off from near the top is completely fine onto pads.

Finally committed and topped out

Bottled it up high - feels positively stratospheric! Down-climbed a fair few moves to take the drop back to earth.

Not nearly as tricky as I thought it might be.

jamiefoxen 03/Jul/10 Sent dnf

just bouldered first half

Woodiee 15/May/10 Sent dnf

got to the 2nd break and began to wish that the ground was closer - maybe next time ill try find some gear and get a bit closer to the top before chickening out- moves felt easier today

mantle87 ?/May/10 Solo RP

very dynamic moves fell a couple of times but well placed mats helped easy once i worked out the sequence

I am rubbish. Been up this four times now to the same point and just haven't had the balls to commit.

Locals beta: Laying away with your right hand on the layaway is better than the more obvious rocking up using it with your left hand. Traditionally graded HVS now gets E3 I think.

Led but poor protection, better to solo with a good pad.

Soloed with ample encouragement from below - necky but it's worth digging deep and going for the break. Excellent route but not E3!
