Rockfax Description
14m. The wall right of the corner is climbed via a flake. The upper section is bold though a runner can be placed in the next route, lowering the grade a notch. © Rockfax

James Coulson 16/May Lead O/S

Gear isn't that bad, good low down then a few micros / offsets and a tiny friend. Flake definitely long gone, remaining hold is good. Lovely moves but does feel quite bold.

Exciting moves, stepped right to protect with a wire in Parkers. Then back left and up, trying to avoid pulling on the crumbly blocks (old 'flake').

Forgot to take microwires which made it a bit bolder than necessary. Avoided using the horribly loose flake altogether.

Nice climbing. Spent a little while eyeing it up. It went as expected, not too technical. Good to have some small wires or it'll be very bold.

MischaHY 21/May/14 Lead O/S

Clean onsight. Got a couple of micro wires below the crux and then just winged to the top, flake is feeling seriously loose.

Leo Woodhead 21/May/14 Lead O/S

Nice route felt easy at the grade. Little run out at the top but the climbing is easy, so you never feel it! Thought the route was going to be harder than it was but the holds are all v positive.

Not too bad, bit scary by the cluster of small wires with the choice between a wobbly jug or tiny feet and a slippy crimp. Took the crimp

Cleaned this after the winter. Note the flake is now more creaky than ever, there is a good placement for micro cam just below the flake, so no runners in the flake please!

felt pretty easy upto the creaky flake, then i just couldnt commit to the move with poor RPs by my feet. Not a bad effort for my first route back after 6 months off though.

Psychological microwires above the break helped...

JamieSparkes 27/Aug/09 TR dog

shunted up this, pretty committing moves using crimps and smearing to move between mantleshelf manoeuvres, crux is leaving the first wide break at 1/3rd height, possibly placement for a small wire at chest height here though its easy enough to traverse to parkers to stick a side runner in.

TR on something 'hard' for fun. Did the whole thing onsight, but bloody hell would have been terrified on lead. Most moves OK apart from the crux, with pretty much no gear to calm nerves. One for way in the future.
