Rockfax Description
A really great wall climb at the grade. Climb the flake and pull out right to better holds. Easier but still excellent climbing, passing to the left of a tree stump, leads to the lower-off.
The original start passes the lone bolt just to the right at 6b. © Rockfax

very steep, and bold start. must remember to beware of giggleswick - hard and steep, and blockier holds than elsewhere

Neil Pacey 19/May/13 Lead O/S

Steep start, a bit awkward to clip first bolt

I think a large flake has fallen at the start, perhaps a little easier now. Lower off renewed.

Connecting the left bolt to the lower off carabiner are two very rusty and suspect maillions. Difficult start and middle section in comparison to the very easy top section. Did not enjoy.

Added new low bolt nearer to the flake which is the way most grade 5 leaders lead it. Direct start past the old bolt is hard 6b.
