Rockfax Description
Follow the steep wall to the weakness through the right end of the large roof. The crux is on the bottom wall but many fall off from high up (hence the name) so remember to milk the mid-height rest. © Rockfax

Second go, felt very soft with knee pad and knee bar beta. I assume the grade is for no knee pad use? ace route

Duncan Campbell 27/Aug Lead RP

Finally! Done on my 5th or 6th red point of the day. So happy to have done it as I was beginning to feel like it was becoming a chore. There is more to life than doing the same route every time you go climbing! Didnt use the knee bar method but got a good heel toe for the crux and used a knee scum going over the first roof (no knee pad). Well happy.

FFS! Had moronically never bothered to shake right hand on jug before crux as it felt too strenuous to hang around on left arm. Decided to try it and then proceeded to hold crimp 3 times but fall going for the pocket! Had about 5 RPs in total. Why I didn't shake my right 3 sessions ago I don't know. Would have probably done it by now! 5th session

Surprise end of day send. 2nd RP. Sloper felt grim but tamed by Johannes' kneebar beta.

2nd RP today, 2nd day. Great route, bit of a sprint to the no-hands rest. Used 3 finger undercut jam to avoid the sloper.

Tried this last year and found the crux moves nearly impossible, thought I was going well at the time too?! Felt a lot, lot easier this time round. Great route but, like all Peak Limestone, hard for the grade.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 05/Aug/14 Lead dnf

First time on it in ages, conditions were awful but I could at least dow the moves in isolation (which is better than last time!).

2 working goes then 3 failed redpoints, felt close on one go, should go when fresh.

Two dogged ascents to work the moves. Got them all reasonably sussed no and think it has a good chance of going next session - just depends whether I can hang in there long enough to pull off the upper crux!
