[Gumshoe Area, 2 kb]14m. Excellent climbing up the middle of the face, being steep and stretchy although with plenty of buckets to swing about on. The finish feels a bit bolder and a long way off the ground. © ROCKFAX

Agreed with the comments below. The friend placement is fairly poor now due to erosion and probably best not tested.
Stoney Boy - 2nd O/S - 21/Jul/12 with Nick Conway

very enjoyable, despite the crux being above truly awful gear!

Fantastic. Gear not "dissapointing" providing you have the right gear.

Got the numbers from Niels and Jake, so I had it more or less wired before leaving the ground. Great climbing. Fell off the back down a hole somehow.

Nice climb. First E2 climbed. Marked for a possible future lead when I'm ready for E2!

EXCELLENT!! with good moves between good holds. the cam slot is very rather worn though there is possibly a good small wire below if the rock doesn't crumble but the top isn't run-out as per rockfax and it felt soft not hard at the grade

Bloody excellent. Crafty hex beta ( ;
