Rockfax Description
An excellent wall climb on perfect rock. Start below some threads and power through the bulges to the gentler upper wall - the threads are the gear. Follow this up rightwards past a bolt, and some threads, then move up and back left (bolt). Move back right then step back left into the groove (bolts). Continue up to the main break. © Rockfax

FA. Pete Gomersall, Jill Lawrence 1975. As an aid route which continued over the roof. FFA (Pitch 1). Ron Fawcett 1980

Felt like e5 with the amount of clips I took with me. Not sure I would have done it if some chopper hadn't put tick marks all over it. Cough dave morse
