[Bernard on Trad Free World, 3 kb]28m. A Wallsend classic that sees plenty of ascents. A lovely pitch on great rock. Start at the left-hand end of a high ledge below a shallow corner. Climb the rib just left of the corner to gain the wall proper and easier climbing. Follow the wall to a thin crack. Climb the thin crack to a final leaning headwall. © ROCKFAX

Lovely sustained climbing with a slight crux for the short around the midway point. Bit of a tricky start but great holds all the way on beautiful quality limestone which enables you to climb through the pump!

6a+ in the CC guide, felt pretty stiff! After a tricky start, some really great climbing on highly textured rock that was more reminiscent of Pembroke than elsewhere in Portland. Doesn't seem to have had much traffic recently judging by the plant life in the crack.

If it was any colder this would have been an ice route with the amount of water on it, lovely climb though.

Not good conditions. Bottom crack very greasy. Took two goes to workout the move up from second bolt. Then on next go was so tired at the top I missed a foot placement on the crack and could not hang on any longer - not used to 30m routes. Will RP next time.
