Rockfax Description
The steep stepped crack in the side-wall leads to a short slippery layback (crux), and then a final steep jamming crack leads on to the summit. Belay with care on the narrow crest. © Rockfax

Layback crack was really slippery on the feet and the final crack was difficult - no real holds until the top, and I'm not very good at jamming!

Bottom part was rubbish. Middle layback crack was nice. Top was rubbish. Big ledges make it not really feel like climbing.

What a lovely climb with some really nice moves all the way from start to finish. Guidebook talks about a slippery layback but there are so many places on the wall to put your feet that you can easily find a non slippy bit. Three star climb.

Easy traverse, one or two stiff layback moves

Can't say that I found this a staircase....strenuous laybacking in the middle and a bit of a fight at the top

took the direct start and found the layback pretty good, best to get a heel over the top as soon as possible

Ed Throp 02/May/10 Lead O/S

Was expecting the layback to be more of a challenge. Found it qite straight forward and was a little dissapointed

Ann S 22/Apr/10 Lead dog

foot slipped while downclimbing the layback so can't claim clean onsight. Finished at top of the layback (missed out the top crack) thankful not to have broken something else. But a good route worthdoing.
