Rockfax Description
Great gear and superb moves on the upper section make this one a must do. Take a direct line to the roof then pull over into the interesting main groove. The finish is a touch polished. © Rockfax

V greasy at the top crack, by the crux, so I had to send down to Ellie for her chalk bag. V nice moves once my fingers agreed to stay on the rock.

Very pleasant. I probably led this back in 1989.

Did not take a small enough nut to protect the move after the bulge before starting the crack, so once I found good gear the top seemed less terrifying. Had to fight hard to finish though.

Tried on lead, could not make the top move. Escaped to the diff on the right. Tried on second and only just managed the final move, Anyon eover 5'5" shouldn't have a problem but below that there is really nothing much to gain height and the good hold. Gear is good.

Hard top section, fell off twice on to a bomber No5 nut before finally pulling through and toping out. Think it was my shear fear of falling again that scared me to the top! Ooh, and a nice climbing fellow gave me some fancy herbal tea between my second and third attempt! Perhaps it was magic tea??!

Found it a big reach to flat and (today) greasy holds. I was very stretched out, and couldn't get a left foot up near my body. Pretty much chinned up it in the end. Had a good wire 1 and Friend 00 at crux, and felt secure enough.

Didn't notice any of the polish it talks about in the guidebook. Found it easier than Slip Road, despite the higher tech grade.

A bit tough as a warm up. I wasn't ready for the challenge and fell at the crux. A few deep breaths and I was fine. OK climb, dreadful gear placements.

with Phil

First climb of they day, the "great gear" mentioned in the book was a tad sparse. No cams on my rack.

MontyH 21/May/08 Lead

The night the older fellow fell off the climbing ledge down to the lower ledge, just because he didn't check the ends of his rope were on the deck. Idiot.

A little lacking in protection half way through which involves moving up to place a nut while in a precarious position (but it was a bomber placement).
