Rockfax Description
A superb route which, despite being rebolted, is still a scary proposition. The lower crack is straightforward but the upper wall proves taxing for its whole length with a particularly testing fingery rock-over. Many will find the final run-out worthy of E5 (it used to be a bit longer, and above a hand-placed bolt). © Rockfax

Day 2 - Probably should have been done on day one and certainly should have been done quicker on day 2 but hey-ho it's done... Lovely climb, glad Ian pointed me towards it.

After trying this (once) all those years ago I came back with pretty much no memory of this, walked up most of it bar the crux and then second go'd it, surprised and happy. Super route.

Great route, went by the skin of my teeth 1st redpoint after putting clips in and quick toprope. A few powerful and committing moves after the break, and then keep your head together when the pump sets in towards the belay. Phew! Thanks to Ben for the belay.

Harder and better than Case Adjourned - crimpy and sustained headwall (placing and clipping QDs felt pretty draining).

Got to the crux on the OS and fluffed it, spent a while working it but couldn't see the sequence. The baker got on it and quickly put me in my place with a flash! beast
