Rockfax Description
One of the very best sport routes in the UK. Start to the left of the Cave Route Left-hand crack and climb past numerous bulges to a hard sequence that accesses the headwall. Finish up the headwall via gradually easing moves to a lower-off in the cave. © Rockfax

mmmmmm... tricky... getting to the RP could well be a very long term affair.

Both cruxs felt low percentage/impossible, have since seen beta for both sections. need to able to recover much more than I can right now, training it is then.

I don't think climbing gets much better than this. Loved the whole process and had the biggest grin on my face climbing through the headwall.

Didn't think I was was gonna get it done (or my draws back) when it turned into a waterfall. Dries quicker than I expected. Awesome!

4th go, (1st of day, 3rd day on route) Best sport pitch in the UK?

Bottom-roped after Robin's successful redpoint, belayed by Dale. By far the hardest route I have ever got on. Couldn't reach the top.

First day with Tim Lowe, who gave me all the beta. Second day managed to red point it first go in front of Jerry Peel, Joe Healey and Martin Berzins, well chuffed!
