57m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A magnificent route for the grade taking in some impressive positions. Start up right below a short hanging corner.
1) 5b, 17m. Climb the corner but move left by the tree onto a slab. Move up then drop down leftwards to a ledge.
2) 5b, 20m. Traverse delicately leftwards to the Carnage belay.
3) 5b (6b free), 20m. As for Carnage pitch 2 to the break. Traverse this break leftwards then move up to a corner. Climb up and step left onto the arete above everything. Finish direct. © Rockfax

Lead p1 and 3. One fall from the last hard move due to being pumped, and missing a foothold. Not fit enough to climb limestone me thinks. 1st pitch is rubbish, but the 2nd and third are good.

joined 1st and 2nd pitch together. surprised by how good the traverse was. Probably better then the carnage to the tree.

Great adventure. Def not a fan of Aid climbing though. I lead the very nice traverse. Really good p3 lead from Jake in the rain.

It was raining quite convincingly, but the aid bit was still definitely the crux.

Led throughout and stringed P1 & 2 together. Second was having a bad day! Loved the top pitch and can't wait to do Carnage too. The aid through the roof doesn't spoil it at all, as I expected it might. Great positions

Led P2... the route is very good and the climbing above the aid move on P3 is superb. Even did the top bit twice to retrive some gear :)

Led pitch 2. Starting moves on pitch 1 seemed really hard for 5b, I think some rock might have broken away by the looks of things so that might be why. After those first few scrappy and hard moves, and other than the short bit of tree-bashing, the whole rotue is brilliant. I was really pleasantly surprised by the traverse.

Excellent route with lots of cool, exposed climbing - top pitch is definitely the best ,and free move is never 6b - seems much harder! (Nice aid move though!!)

With accidental even further left hand finish on final pitch involving a dyno to a tree at the end. Nice rock and climbing but too cold today to enjoy it properly.

As steve said... really good route.. would have been better if it had not been raining.. and steve's dead point to the tree.. haha! Note to steve: remember where your pitches go hehe!!
