25m. A lonely detour onto the front face of the tower gives a few good moves in a fine position. Try not to think about what is holding the tower up as you make a gripping series of lifting-a-fridge type of moves. A remarkably harrowing pitch for its relatively lowly grade. © ROCKFAX

A very exciting climb, not one I would want to fall off! always looked at this as a kid and thought I would never be able to climb it.
roberto18 - Lead O/S - 30/Sep/12 with Dad (Mike Bridges)

Great route, it's been on Rob's tick list for ages, felt pumpy but more holds than I'd expected! Pleased to 2nd it clean, Rob did a good job on lead as usual!

Fun climbing. Not too hard, but the gear looked pretty ropey.
victim of mathematics - 2nd O/S - 24/May/11 with Dan Arkle

First E2, was fairly scared at the top with the runout and the amazing exposure, nothing to your left, nothing to your right... air all around. Loved it.
Oliver Branagan - Lead O/S - 17/Jul/10 with Miles M

Agree with Al below. Bit loose and a a touch bold in parts but good quality.

Sweet route, route quality not the best, slighty escapable, but amazing monkey-up-a-sticking, under-rated.
