Rockfax Description
A fine route which is high in the grade and popular too. Start from the ramp, then move right and up to the bulge. Move past this then stretch right to an overlap. Finish straight up. © Rockfax

horribly polished, would have been a good route before being hammered. Some of the routes on this wall have polish but are still good to climb, this one suffers too much because of the nature of footholds / smears.

Almost onsight last time, so thought I'd have it first go, how wrong can you be. Had to work all the moves, then it went on the next go. Must have been the granola. Sustained with a poor rest at last bolt, polish didn't seem to matter and all of the moves are sweet. Went straight up to undercuts at last bolt rather than the filthy traverse right. Mustn't forget huge undercut between 1st and 2nd bolts either! Really enjoyed it.

Dogged is an understatement. I think I completed every individual move, but I'm not sure. No chance second go

Wet, dirty and polished - and not a warm up, but only thing nearly dry on this wet day. Nice moves all the same. Defeated by the sidepull into the high(wet)sloper.

Misha 05/Apr/14 Lead RP

Very hard for the grade, at least in today's conditions, wouldn't argue with 7a. The sloper that you have to latch at the third clip was sopping wet, to the extent that I had to clip stick up to the bolt and dry the hold with a beer mat. After that it was still very damp but just about climbable! Got it second go. A great little route, technical and fairly physical, with a fun finish over the last bulge.

Wet, grimy, and a poor choice of warm-up so abandoned.
