[High on Return to Roissy (6b+), Blacknor Central, 3 kb]28m. The long crack is a good route. Start at a boulder on the path. Climb the lower wall to below a long flake-crack. Climb the accommodating crack to a tricky bulge at its end. Finish up a perplexing groove in the headwall. © ROCKFAX

Awesome climb! Fell off right at the top. I can do the move- I slipped off today in the heat so I might wait until a cooler day!

rustaldo - Lead O/S - 19/Jul/12 with Jordon Fleming

Hidden - Lead O/S - 01/Jul/12

Last pitch where it really kicks in, not helped by missing/reduced handhold, consequently, it should be bumped up a grade.
Ali.B - Lead O/S - 25/Jun/12

Good fun, not more than 6a+. Last move is brilliant.

Kevster - Lead O/S - 09/Oct/11

Nice route, lead once before 2 or 3 years ago. Felt much easier this time. Couple of hard moves at the top but the rest is easy. Overhanging flake part is thuggy and fun.

Not quite OS due to grabbing a bolt after fumbling trying to clip. Wish I'd known the top was easy to grab :(

Moves from the final bolt to LO is nails. Crucial hold was wobbling so palmed mostly. Sketchy final clip.

the last rout of the day - absolutely amaizing in the sunset. Amaizing guggy flake most of the way up with a rediculously blank top that i couldn't really do.

Stunning route, just ran out of steam topping out of the slightly overhung/steep flake - stunning layback climbing leading to an airy, precarious, balancy, committing, finish (with a potentially looonng fall if you don't stick it!).
