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

Nice route. First onsight lead of the year, was definintely rusty in spotting holds!

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.

Paz 17/Sep/08 2nd β

Tough position to hold and irreversible, hard therefore.

Mark lead the route then dropped the ropes. I then lead the route but clipped his gear...mind you, some of it disappeared at crucial times!
