Rockfax Description
A major classic, originally led with a single thread-runner. Climb the cracked slab to the overhang then swing around the arete. The famous rocking block was removed in late 2013 - the crux is now a bit harder. Pull up and make difficult moves to get back on the front face. The upper slab is delicate though gear is adequate nowadays with modern technology. © Rockfax

Superb. Was dubious about the traverse right and even more so the traverse back round! If you dont know where the holds are this feels pretty sketchy. I used a small cam to protect the move (pretty poor), maybe a large one would have been better. Its the move round the corner followed by the airy top that makes it such a belter. Sun setting on a July evening too, magic.

Rested on gear before making the move out onto the face; a harder move than I remembered. The upper slab is sustained and delicate but bomber protection with micro cams.

The sun in my eyes and the gusty wind made the upper slab feel trickier than usual. The loss of the block hasn't affected the grade and it hasn't made the move around the arête harder, but the route has certainly got more battered since I first did it just over 13 years ago: some of the cam slots are beginning to show real signs of wear and tear.

Confirmed that the slot where the block used to be can accommodate a grown man in fetal position.

got a bit stuck on the ledge where the block used to be, as my back was going into spasm. Crucial move round the arete is pretty tough, can imagine it'd be afair bit easier when the block was there as your feet are significantly lower now! Large cam would make this move feel much less bold. Top bit at the worn cam slot had me flummoxed for ages, but figured it out eventually!

Wow! Excellent yet scary climb. Only scary because I spent ages tryng to get gear in around the corner in a not very restful resting position. Probably would have been easier to climb straight through to crux! Is there a knee-bar there somewhere? Want to try it again! Crux move is awesome and the slab is sustained and just about protected. Definitely a classic.

Awesome.

Crux is also a bit goey as youre a way above the block as youre rocking round teh arete, and theres no rest anywhere about.
