Rockfax Description
A stunning climb taking on the massive slab.
1) 27m, 4+. Move up to the high first bolt and continue past a steepening to easier ground and a stance with a lower-off.
2) 25m, 5+. Climb up the wall and take the last section past the final two bolts well to their right. © Rockfax

Robert led P1. Bolts are rather spaced on P1 - a grand total of 4 bolts over 27m.

Very nice route, bolts are sportingly placed but fairly steady climbing

Very run-out first pitch (4 bolts in 25 metres) and hard second pitch for the grade - clipping the last bolt v tricky.

Some of the bolts are very spaced and in annoying places, great climb though.

Led first pitch. Top is a bit sketchy.

katiep 06/Nov/14 AltLd rpt

Led second pitch, hard move at the top, think I should have gone further right of the bolt

Might get down on rope stretch on an 80m, but you can do it on a dozen quickdraws. One densely bolted section, otherwise quite run out!

P1 only. 4 bolts in 27m is a bit nuts! We joked that it was Dad's first E1 - E1 4+!!

Bolted by someone mildly sadistic. Haemish clipped some of the bolts for me so I didn't lead much of it! Tiff's first multipitch

Missed one clip on 2nd pitch as poorly bolted and clipping it would have ended up being the crux!

Bolts on first pitch are miles apart, 27m with 4 bolts??? Finish is confusing with bolt positions. Rockfax book says finish way right of the bolts but you can also traverse left on to the second to last bolt and finish direct(5+ - 6a)

Zoomer 30/Apr/09 AltLd

Very sparse bolting on first pitch, 4 bolts! 2nd pitch doesn't live upto the guide book due to poor bolting.
