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.

Nice lower section, much helped having just seen my partner climb it. The move to the last bolt is just hideous, literally relying on rough sketchy bits of rock for your hands and making a big left foot step up, whilst praying there is a good handhold at the top.

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.

Good fun pumpy moves to start with, gets a bit sketchy further up

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
Georgia H - TR - Aug/13

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.
