[Tom on The Man Who Fell to Earth - Embankment at Cheedale, 3 kb]10m. Just left of the central groove. Getting to the overlap at the break is okay then a reachy pull provides the main difficulties. Finding the correct hold is usually the crux. © ROCKFAX

Really nice route, can't wait to come back and try to get it clean. The crux is tough, and even when you've sunk the hold to surmount the break there's still a few good moves before you know that you've done it.

Jake Young - Lead RP - 09/Aug/12 with Mark R

Trying to onsight, got through the crux to the good hold but then faffed about too long before getting my feet up over the lip, and couldn't make the clip so slumped back down. Silly really. Cruxy route.

Previously top-roped. Found the moves to the break a bit stiff and puzzling. Felt a bit gritstone-esk through the top section?
