Heavens opened approaching half height. Waited out on a ledge until the rain stopped and the rock dried to keep the onsight. Awesome route.

Wow! Delicate moves up to an overhang with a hanging jug, Long reach needed to step over. A fingery finish, Stamina fading!

Epically long and very good. Used 70m rope and the lower off of the route next door. 40m sounds about right!

Massive pitch more like 40m. Just possible on 70m rope with some down climbing.

2 rests. One hard move to tufa just over half way. Had to tie two ropes together to lower off as over 70m.

john_ni 16/Oct/11 Lead

Lovely climbing. 70m rope was not long enough, end up 2 bolts up - luckily hadnt clipped the 1st so just hung off the 2nd bolt whilst joined on another rope. Oh & the Rockfax pic is wrong for routes 13,14,15 dashes need to shift left 2m, 14 actually starts where 13 is shown.

This climb is about 42m long.

alexrafferty1986 29/Apr/09 Lead O/S

Great route, although its a little longer than the 35m stated as our 70m rope got me no where near the floor!!

Brilliant route but spoiled by the guidebook description that you can lower off with a 70m rope. We did and were left dangling with 4m to go! 80m rope will cover. Did at dusk and reached the bolt in pitch black at 10pm.
