Rockfax Description
Another gem. Climb through the low overhangs with difficulty, then continue up the sustained wall above to a wide corner. Follow this to a steep finish past a pocket. © Rockfax

Just as good as the No Man is an Island

Got confused on this as I thought I was originally on No Man Is An Island to the left, but got on this by mistake! Climbed 1st half to the ledge then traversed left onto the correct route.

Had way to many clips in for this to be a real lead. Had rope in for the hard bit at the start

tried first time year ago, now did it first go

stp 23/May/14 Lead O/S

Crux of the route by far is the move to get a hold that you clip the second bolt from with the wrong hand. This makes the route contrived and it would probably be a grade easier if the bolt was moved so as to allow sensible clipping.

Fluffed up the move to the anchor jug. there is a great hand jam which I totally missed and pumped out trying to figure out a different sequence.

So close! Had to rest about half way just before the epic break & rest. If I'd known I'd have run out as the clip was tricky. Book said F6c+ but easier
