35m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the very best VSs at Swanage. Both technical and sustained, but furnished with good protection. Start at a raised ledge below a corner next to a massive boulder.
1) 4c, 20m. Climb the corner until level with an overhang on the left. Traverse beneath this and pull up the wall on good holds to a good ledge and huge flake belay.
2) 5a, 15m. Stand on the flake, then either climb with difficulty direct to the next wide break, or at about the same difficulty, step left and move up to the break. Climb past the overhang above on its left, and finish up the corner above. © Rockfax

Strange that the 2nd pitch has the higher grade - it seems pretty simple - the move under the roof before the belay is the crux for me.

SenzuBean 16/Aug/15 Lead O/S

Superb climb. Very easy line to follow, and very taxing doing the traverse under the overhang. The second pitch was not as hard as the first we think - even though the guidebook said the second pitch was 5a and the first 4c. Was very happy I decided to have my cams with me, as I actually managed to place one on P2 :)

FC had a little wibble on P1 after going off route onto the HVS and then trying to back climb. After that he wasn't up for the quite committing 4c move over the overhang so I led P1 with the first 3 bits of gear pre-placed. The 5a moves of P2 were fun and also quite bold for the grade. I'm glad I found a secret hold that was unchalked and so possibly missed by many! Definitely at the top end of VS but so deserving of it's 3 stars. Bravo!

I did pitch 1 - didn't fancy the hvs! Pitch 2 goes more reasonably if you step left on to the slab and do a long reach up with the left hand from the horizontal holds at a similar level to the nut / peg. It is a bit smeary though. However the moves are easier and the fall out zone safer than the more direct method.

What a great route - not too bad at all - loads of gear and holds under the overhang - didn't notice any wobble on the belay flake - the rusty old peg was just solid enough to clip and a small superlight rock in the pocket - just enough to give you confidence. to make the move across the slab. Finished off with a mini dyno and an Ondra power scream for the break - happy days !

Lead first pitch - very pleasant climbing. Jauntily ascended the crux, which turns it from a 5a move to something much easier.

Brilliant climb with gripping mid-climb belay. Ledge is above big overhang and wobbly flake rests on it. Yikes!!! It's all going to come down some time.

Great route. The 5a slab grading is truly local grading though, it's barely even 4c if you've ever climbed a slab before...

Tricky traverse left to belay on first pitch. There is however a huge jug to grab and place gear to protect second (which I didn't see until after I bottled it and hung on some gear lol!)
