Rockfax Description
The left-hand side of the pillar gives decent climbing to a final couple of difficult moves direct past the final bolt. You can slink left around this top bolt at 6a. © Rockfax

Varied climbing. Two rests, found the run outs daunting. Attempted right twice, settled for the 6a finish.

In the dark...in the rain, top half quite green and slippy when wet.

The direct finish is at least 6b!

Found this quite difficult, pulled on the final bolt.

Tried the direct route past the final runner but couldn't do it. Glad to see Rockfax database now says 6b for that finish and 6a if you go left, though that didn't seem in keeping with the climb, so tried the direct a few times, then backed off.

i agree with rockfax saying its 6b with the direct finish. tried and fell a few times then went left which felt like cheating.

Really nice climb until the top when it seems v2/3 to go direct and not so nice to the side!

Felt a bit of tough warm up. Quite good rock but bland characterless wall climbing that lacked a good line.

Top hold came off in my hand, fell 20ft and nearly killed my belayer. Good warm-up!
