Rockfax Description
14m. Start (pond permitting) at a large flake and gain a standing position with difficulty. Pull up the wall then swing left to reach and climb the pocketed crack on Birdlime Traverse. At the top of this swing left again to reach a short finishing crack. Slightly butch and totally brilliant. © ROCKFAX

Fell of the first moves three times and got some nice rope burn on my leg. Got so far as the middle break but wasn't happy so backed off. It's a pumpy number. Awesome line - I'll come back when I'm fitter!

funsized - Lead β - 30/Oct/11 with Jake Lloyd

So much fun! Safe as you like, with some really good moves. Didnt have a guidebook, just looked like a nice bit of rock. So the line we took was direct to the top. From the obvious break where the book says go left, i mantled up and finished straight up. Dont know why this isn't an accepted variation, because it was really good fun!

LisaA - Lead dnf - 31/Aug/11 with Alistair

An amazing route, i loved every part of it, the flakes to the balancy technical crimps and lay backs. Run out of juice about 3 moves from the end had a phone call from me dad, and then finished up the route. I will be back to send it.

Hidden - TR rpt - 02/Apr/11

Credit to chris for lending me a chalkbag. tried to run at chevin was really struggling having not recovered from my last run. As I struggled past caley popped up pedestal wall. Realised how much more fun soloing is than running. Ran back to my car, drove to cliff. Conditions were prime on my normal solo circuit(sans DW). Asked chris if I could borrow his chalk bag and got on it. Fell off the crux(didn't use my feet) but got it second go and the rest was just pumpy HVS init. (sorry logbook stalkers, who probably note I don't normally record repeat solos but fuck it MADE UP :) )

Pretty soft for the grade, shame it is not more sustained. A 5c move with a 4c jug/jam dash! Really nice route never the less!

Brilliant route, pumpy but not too technical. Had all the gear in and bottled the last traverse only to find perfect jams on a second attempt - doh!

Brilliant, if only it were possible to savour it for little longer instead of sprinting for the top.

Bagged this great E2 onsight whilst really going well on grit. Perfect conditions and great company made it one of my favourite experiences. Do Black Wall Direct immediatley afterwards to understand how the Britsh grading system and grit can combine to really fuck your head up!

Having done all the VS climbs at Almscliff, including Great Western VS 5a (1982 guide) we moved onto our first HVS! Duncan placed 2 bits of gear, 1st after the crux, 2nd in the vertical crack just before the overhang. He fell from the horizontal break about 3ft above the last runner, the karabiner broke and he took a 40ft ground fall. 40 minutes on his back in a large puddle of cow shit and mud, the ambulance men did comment that thankfully the cows had dysentery and it was a wet summer. Didn't help when someone said it had been upgraded to E2 in the new supplement, was a bit too late for us though.
