The prominent corner at the left-hand end of the wall. The start is tricky then detour left around the roof at half-height. © Rockfax

Graeme Hammond 26/May Lead O/S

Found hard due to loose rock and not always being convinced about the gear at times.

Diverted left at the overhand, but probably very similar going straight up. Some loose rock, some good moves

Have to say I thought this route was pretty poor. The number of loose holds (some of which were obviously polished or gear-worn) that I had to avoid pulling on was well into double figures. Perhaps the recent cold winters have done it no good? No need to detour left at half-height, obvious direct line is straightforward. The top bit has a few nice moves on to the ledge in the gully. P.S. unless I was on Lumb Lane instead of Lamplight, as I had no guide! I'm pretty sure it was Lamplight though.
