Rockfax Description
Sustained climbing up the lower wall culminates in a pressing finish through the upper bulge to reach a good hold near the top. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
The third route from the right sporting lots of old pegs. Again a good reach helps on the top wall.

This actually climbed pretty well right up until the top 1/3 which is loose again. Didn't want to take the risk so bailed.

TR Shunt. Had to rest in 2 places, the lower part I got pumped on then the top part took me a while. Another good climb here.

getting over the small overhand is tricky

Took 3 goes just down to the last moves over the bulge - finding a suitable crimp blind was tricky. Also direct sun in 28 degrees wan';t helping!! Beware loose rock higher up as with all these here.

All the routes on the "knob" are good but seriously need more traffic as they are quite dirty/dusty and there is a lot of loose rock in the band of "cheese" that runs across at 2/3 height.

Absolutely freezing, so numb fingers thwarted the ascent. I'm 5'8" and that last move's a nightmare! Probably more like 6b/+ for me. Partner pulled huge jugs/undercuts off the start of the headwall too.
