Rockfax Description
A superb and sustained route with a hard start up the shallow rounded weakness. One of the most impressive and best pitches on the Isle when in prime condition. © Rockfax

A really excellent route. 2nd go today plus a quick play on the lower 2/3rds last weekend. Good conditions to start but a bit worse for the actual redpoint which made for a big fight...

So good. Be careful with the final holds.

A post from the forums: Top section between last bolt and belay was loose, and I pulled off a large block narrowly missing my partner below, our ropebag wasnt so lucky! Several block and holds on the same level appear loose and have hollow sounds, so take it easy at the top! Spoils some nice clinbing below! perhaps the belay should be lower? cheers john
