Rockfax Description
A direct on Sepulchrave with only a short independent section but with some memorable moves! Climb Sepulchrave's crack then continue directly to enter the large porthole by awkward undercutting and a precarious high step. Finish up Sepulchrave. © Rockfax

dr_botnik 17/Apr Lead G/U

Tried this before and came off at porthole. Finished it off today clean, but plenty of udging at the top.

Tried before but backed off. Still struggled today. Great move though

Pulled on a cam on the HVS bit near the start and required frequent rests on the HVS wide crack at the top. The 5c was not so bad if you could reach.

Misha 18/Oct/08 Lead dog

Fell off crux, comedy upside-down fall into the tree branches. Did the crux easily second go but the cleft at the top proved a complete mare, had to leave the helmet in the recess to be able to do the full body jam!

Brian Rodgers 18/Oct/08 Lead O/S

Misha left his gear in after Mike failed to second it, so used it on the way past.
