Rockfax Description
A great route that strings you along, with every move a little harder than the last one! Cracks in the side-wall lead to small runners from where thin moves reach the crest, leaving only a tough rounded mantelshelf to glory. © Rockfax

Great route, gradually harder all the way up, with a classic gritstone top-out

Amazing route, 1st e2 of the year. Didn't have the perfect size wire because I'd placed it below. Lovely route

Cool, and really pretty safe. Tricky mantel at the top

Graeme Hammond 26/Sep/11 Lead O/S

Gradually gets harder but with excellent gear for the crux even if it is near/below your feet (those who can't find the excellent size 2/3? runner below the more obvious poor top runner need to look harder!!) The rounded finish isn't easy but isn't as desperate either.

msoldn 25/Sep/11 2nd β

Felt very technical and thin at the top, must be hard to keep your bottle on lead, with only marginal gear by your feet.

Really pleased with this, faffed for a bit by the poor final gear (I didnt have the right size nut) before committing to the moves above it; it felt good to top out. Great moves too.

Steadily harder moves, as described, but lead sucessfully at first attempt. Unable to get up it on a toprope a few years later...
