Rockfax Description
A superb route. Follow Wombat steeply into the corner then break left across the slab and climb up to an old bolt. Step left to a small roof and pull through this to a ramp which is followed to a break - peg on right. Reach up to another break - peg - and make one last move to the top. © Rockfax

Got on the right route this time. Got a bit pumped on the slopey breaks at the top.

Was supposed to be my first E3 lead - my mates only told me afterwards it had recently been upgraded to E4. My first E1 (Whinstone Churchill, Crag Lough was upgraded to E2). My wife commented that, it this trend continued, I could sit in the armchair at home and end up having led E6! Incredibly pumpy and I admit to dogging the final moves from Ron Fawcett's peg in the break,
