2 pitches. Ultra steep route on big tufas and pockets leading to a crux section and tricky finish. The corner groove at the start has now been bolted. If you lead the route from the ground (rather than belaying from the pillar) the rope runs easily if you don't clip the pedestal bolt, but drags over edges if you do. You can climb up, clip the first roof bolt, then come down and remove it.

Ticklists: Classic UK F7s.

Fantastic climbing - didn't make the finish. Need to be fitter.

First session back on it in 9 months ... Feels easier than last year, but still couldn't get the tick!

Have had a couple of dabbles before, first proper go at it this evening, sent 1st RP. Skipped the penultimate clip for added excitement. What an amazing route, love the finishing sequence.

1st RP. Was a bit worried about the bolts so put in a mega-extender from the route on the left. Probably the best route at the crag, shame it's not longer.

Did all the moves today, found a helpful knee-bar. Start linking next time.

ollie_e 31/May/14 Lead RP

One of the best routes anywhere. Appalling conditions today though, shocked to find myself at the top! 4RP overall I think.

Tomar 31/May/14 Lead dog

4 good attempts, pretty close but all ending with an epic fall at the final roof. I'll be back, don't you worry!
