Rockfax Description
Wanders up the left-hand side of the wall. Climb a groove to steeper rock then pull right and back left (ancient peg) making long reaches to a narrow ledge on the left. Finish out right, steeply but on better holds. © Rockfax

Very happy to get this. Felt the moves up to the peg quite off-putting but the final crimps were better than expected. Also some decent micro wires just before the peg.

Joughton 18/Aug/12 Lead O/S

This felt steady up until the crux, which was absolutely desperate! I thought the hard bit was just getting to the peg, but the footholdless move out left nearly spat me off. Maybe my fingers aren't strong enough, but this felt harder than 6a.

Another attempt to get back into leading E4 - plummet from the moves up to the ledge. A repeat go and plummet - bashing ankles into tree and ledge below. Call it a day

First E4 o/s. Just one hard section, couldn't fit gear into crack by peg. Cheers to guy who commented how desperate crux was as I was about to do it!

Last time took a fall (7m) and was too tired to finish clean this time felt a lot stronger and more confident on it. brilliant climbing.

Alex Mason 30/Jan/08 Lead dog

First trad route for a few months, absolutely loved it, got committed and took a 6m lob from just below the ledge. climbed every move clean but had 1 fall and 1 rest on the peg after the fall.

with Rob Gambles

Failed 2 days ago. Get a good rock 2 below the peg and dont dither trying to get any more above. Hard committing moves on thin edges out left - hands on ledge - mantel up - done it. Exposed moves up R to finish. Abb for gear

with Rob Gambles

Fail when I drop my wires from just above the peg (and fall off myself). Rob lowers me into the pool to retrieve the bunch of wires.
