Rockfax Description
The tall left-hand arete of the buttress is excellent and mild. Climb the central crack and make a short traverse left to the arete at the earliest opportunity. This is then followed throughout with good runners in the breaks and lovely positions. The route is very photogenic from either side. © Rockfax

Felt really exposed at the top which wasn't helped as I ran out of cams for the top break and had to place my red hex in a horizontal break. Pulled ropes after my lead and Tom lead on my gear with a borrowed cam from some other guys. Cherelle seconded up but left the cam and hex which the guy who followed up afterwards said was bomber!

Really very easy for a VS, whoever says it feels like a real VS is in for a hardtime elsewhere I think! I would give it HS 4b possibly. Gear every metre or so if you want it, practically no tricky moves and enormous handle holds when you want them! However easy it may do, it feels brilliant! Plenty of protection but in a quite exposed place especially with the huge gusts of wind we were dealing with! Only intimidating bit is the slab but rest is very pleasent. Had to sit at the top for probably an hour whilst Dad finished his climb and could follow me, along with Neil. Bloke at the top seemed nice enough! Only had one anchor to use though which I don't normally like doing!

Lovely friction and a crux that seems bloody hard for 4b. A must do route at this crag.

Should have solo'd this as it as well overgraded and a bit dissapointing as a result. I would give it HS 4a.

Belayed Andy in rain, while thunder storm was approaching fast, surrounded with many metal gear at the top of pinnacle… Very scary! Andy escaped to the right eventually, and we dashed to the lower ground. We had to stay for quite some time before the thunderstorm finally passed. An experience!
