Very good. Rockfax has the belays in the wrong place at the top of pitch 1 and 3.

Overated but undergraded. Slightly committing 6c would be nearer the mark. Having said that, the grading at Bellecombe is generally severe.

What a feature; amazing. Pitch 1 was a little chossy with the remaining pitches on better rock. A few nuts were welcome on run out sections... three stars for setting.

Good climbing, great position....when not lead astray by bolts leading off into the choss!
andyinglis - AltLd - 14/Oct/10 with Angus N Clark, Neil Adams

Nice route. I lead P1&2 as one, then Andy got suckerred into the chossy wall on the left. I did a bit of swinging about to retrieve draws from there, then lead P3. Angus lead P4.
