Rockfax Description
Intimidating climbing up the jutting prow. Climb the lower wall to jams below the overhang, up this with difficulty (good small wire up and left) to reach a ramp. Hand traverse rightwards up this to gain the arete and a sprint finale. © Rockfax

Had 2 goes Ground Up, first went pretty badly, second got out on the scoop but couldn't pull round. Psyched to come back when it's colder. Having said that, still didn't second it clean after Nick. Felt hard for 6a.

Super cool crux, good holds all the way and a mega rest under the roof, not very comitting at the grade.

ground up, second go. Fell first time near the top of the ramp, with right hand on the arete. Steady enough on the second go. Didn't bother with the high wire placement, looked too pumpy to place

felt really easy after just watching marc do it, helps so much knowing what to do before you even get there it feels like cheating :P

Fell just before the slap out right. Second go move hands up to higher slopers before making the move... which was still bloody hard. Will cruised it. Good effort!

Climbed to the overhang clean. Tried the crux but was pumped from taking the gear out at the break so slumped on the rope. Rope stretched more than I was expecting so ended up hanging in free space unable to get on the route. Had got all the gear out so got lowered off. Didn't think I'd get the move anyway as it looked hard!

fell off first time, ripped the RP, got back on and sent it without the rp, it's still safe without it

obviously not in the mood to commit today. Wouldn't have been upset wiht ground up but didn't fancy taking lobs and making Anna have to sit around belaying for ages while I hung around forever. Climbed up to the main roof, and then reversed removing kit. Felt o.k to where i got. I didn't even try the next moves but the reach looks big and the ramp looks slopey! Look forward to getting back on it though when i have a full day to smash it in! Still can;t work out where the RP is. Is it in the crack left of the hanging ramp??

didn't bother with the rp's. (felt hard enough just to hang on and climb!)
