Rockfax Description
Odd but amusing. Monkey up the steep blocky corner to its top then trend left up the wall to below the final large roof that caps the wall. Cross this via a superb curly jug to a belly-flop landing. © Rockfax

The Rockfax guide mentioned a jug at the top, but I never found it. Neil found one off to the left on second but I told him he couldn't use it. Too far off line!

One-move wonder. Blunder up past the overhang and thing just become too easy. Anticlimactic.

I'm sure I'm not the first to have done this, it looks like an obvious continuation of Heather wall but there didn't seem to be an entry on UKC. There looks to be an even more direct finish, topping out straight instead of to the left via a lone jug and a high heel-hook. I didn't have the balls for that on lead. Chris tried the superdirect finish on second but couldn't quite get over.

A truly monkeying climb. The beginning is a fun challenge as long as you hug the boulder on the right. Once on top of it there is a lovely rest seat that makes a nice nest. The finishing move is rather exciting and was eventually completed thanks to Steve's beta. 2 stars.

Probably didn't take the best line at the start. Bellyflop at the top was really fun!

with Noel
Andrew Sloan 12/Mar/12 Lead O/S

The start is a thuggish 5b. The curly jug belly flop was beyond me; had to go up further left. I would give it E1 5c.

Started on left wall below the o'hanging block. Used two small horiz. handholds and small footholds to reach over the block (good runner on lip if reqd.) - then laybacked facing left. Western Roll over the o'hanging finish (superb h/holds) but only after 2nd man was belayed at the same level . . . First done by me in 1970s (solo).
