Rockfax Description
The open-corner on the left of the buttress gives a great outing on good holds with plenty of solid runners after a vegetated start. At the top break, move out left to escape. There may be an abseil station in place, if not, walk round. If you thought it a push-over, consider the next route as a suitable extension. © Rockfax

As the start to Alpomb. Sacked this off due to the second pitch being a loose grassfest. shame as the wild traverse was so close and looked awesome.

JakeWShaw 06/Jun/14 2nd O/S

Just did this after deciding against climbing the ivy/grass that was the second pitch of Aplomb. The rest looked so good, shame about the start

2nd attempt to do Aplomb but after Jim spent ages trying to lead this, I finished this off and we abseiled off as Jim wasn't feeling so good. 3rd time lucky i might actually get on the route?

Ha! Poor performance. Slightly damp, couldn't find the holds on the early crux to long plumes of cascading grass. Little rest, then completed. Good route, first bit needs a real good garden though!

went to do Aplomb but John didn't like the belay at the end of pitch 2 so he reversed the pitch and we abseiled off. Excellent route in its own right.

Dan Lane 28/Jun/10 Lead O/S

not a bad route, although the bottom section is quite vegetated. Top section makes up for it though. Some very new abseil tat, a sling, some brand new tat, and a petzl self locking krab, only put there last week by the look of it.

Went to do Aplomb, but second pitch (Neil's) was like climbing vegetated shale so backed off.

A great route with an adventurous feel, should have taken two ropes and abbed off tree, as descent path was awful

Shaun finished seconding as rain started. Chris Tan got halfway up but it was like a waterfall & he couldn't see through his glasses, so lowered off. We abbed off, but the rope wouldn't follow. A 2 hour epic covered in mud ensued to retrieve the rope!
