Rockfax Description
Another reasonable route though this one has a few bold moves. It essentially links the start of Where Are My Sensible Shoes to the top of Drowning Man, via a small ramp-line. © Rockfax

My first 6a+. Some great sloping lay-back moves up the rising traverse, although the very last moves at the top felt the crux. Awesome.

Made a right botch of the start, peeled, and next thing I know I'm being escorted to Bangor in a helicopter. Cock.

Probably 6a if you read the moves correctly. Small cam or nut useful for protecting last move as it's above a ledge.

Excellent route but sandbag. F6b.

Chris the Tall 12/May/12 2nd dog

Bit of french free on the first bolt, bit of a rest on the second, can't even blame the wet bits. Some good moves but surely at least 6b

Why the **** bolting! What I did was good (trickier than it looks from the ground) but with damp holds and thoughts of the rope scything I backed off before getting stood up in Drowning Man. Needs an extra bolt.

Caused problems for several people. Probably at least 6b. Found it harder than Drowning Man and would be more bold to lead. Not well bolted.

Ian Andrews 13/Nov/11 2nd β

Committing to lead from the 2nd bolt to 3rd. Was wet in places. 6b maybe +.

Unnerving... even when seconding. Slate was wet and slippery in places. Enjoyed it though

My first lead climb! Midges everywhere, but other than that it was a good experience!
