Rockfax Description
A mind-blowing single pitch taking in the full height of the wall right of the Cave Routes. Climb the overhanging wide crack and narrowing groove with difficultly to a ledge and lower-off. Climb up the wall above to a small niche and move right and up before trending left to a lower-off. Move up to the large overhang and take the right-hand line of bolts to some wildly-positioned moves before the lower-off. Lower off in two stages if you don't have an 80m rope. It is also worth 7c+ if started up Last Dog. © Rockfax

Good route!! took me a little while to figure out a good sequence through the upper roof. Looking forward to getting back on this.

Third session. What a brilliant route, definitely worth carrying on after the Dogpoint belay - makes the whole experience so much better.

Will need to go back and get this finished, good route when done to the lower chains but incredible when you go all the way to the top!

To the roof belay - 7B+. Pretty much on sight - saw Alan Steele RP it whilst belaying on warm up. Pleased, need to return for the top.

To the top this time. Ace route!

TomPR 30/Jun/10 Lead

Only to the main overhang (7b+ ?) - a great reason to return to finish off properly!

marky65 30/Jun/10 Lead

scraped, slapped and rested up to the 7b+/7c lower off but powered out towards the end of the roof. Hopefully complete the whole monster pitch next time!

To be honest, didn't get very near this one! Made the first overhang OK but ran out of steam at the bottom of the crack

Steve Crowe 17/Sep/95 -

Done many times since. Brilliant route. Still keen to try with the original start.
