24m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Worthwhile, though the second pitch is a bit of a let-down.
1) 4c. Climb the tough cracks, the left-hand one is tricky, the right-hand crack only gives painful finger-jamming at E1 5c.
2) 4b. Finish up the awkward groove to a loose exit. © Rockfax

Really good route and worthwhile climbing. Feeling really good until fell a couple metres from the top of P1 after getting really pumped and foot slipped... Note to self: maybe shouldn't warm up on a pumpy VS while having a wrist injury? Well, these are my excuses anyway.

Foot slipped near the top and took a sizeable fall. Quite a bit of slack in the system as second pitch is set some distance back from the first.

Led P1 keeping to the left hand crack as much as possible for jamming practice. Silly, but good. Led P2 also - also silly, but safe. A big cam in the break will protect the top-out onto the ledges where loads of loose rocks lie in wait to fall on your second and the assembled throng below - step carefully and manage your ropes with equal care.

SuperLee1985 05/May/14 Lead

Nice climbing but megga pumpy, particularly after my previous epic lead on Lorica. Stevie started to lead it but was proper dogging it so came down so I went up on his gear. Rested a couple of times on gear due to pump and a failure to work out what I was doing. Ran out of big gear near the top and did the last few meters without placing anything which actually made it much easier/less pumpy. The climbing is not tecnhicallly hard, just steep and sustained and i need to get better at resting on jams.

After having fallen off of this last time I got the first pitch clean (still a bit of a struggle though). Made the mistake of doing the second pitch ! No way is it 4b !!!!! It should carry a health warning. Although the gear is good it's a strenuous layback all the way. Got to the top first time and couldn't find any decent hold to grab, fell from the top almost to the ledge. Got it second time clean

One slip 3 metres up onto a solid nut placement, then continued with the route (climbed the crux cleanly). An education in good (or bad) crack technique, can be made overly pumpy and strenuous very easily.

A year and a half on from my first ever out door lead I tried this route and lay-backed it to the top which led my foot to slip this time round I used the second thin crack this time not just for extra gear but with finger locks this time I must say I have improved. its a good bench mark route for people starting VS leads Confidently its very enjoyable all thought I haven't climbed the second pitch at all it doesn't look inviting scrambled off right or abseil down..

Lead both pitches. Pitch 1 is a pig at VS (but probably the right grade). Not enough secure hand / fist jams, no rests, strenuous gear placements and sore feet jams. Well hard! Pitch 2 is short but quite good I thought, bit loose on the easy bit after the finish, just take a bit of care.

Tried pitch 1, horrendous, decided I didn't want to go any higher than my second piece of gear. Jason took over and led it through. I still found seconding pitch 1 horrible and think I even had a rest as a second! I led pitch 2 and did it cleanly, which was good as it wasn't straight forward either. I'm sure pitch 1 should be HVS.
