Rockfax Description
16m. Perhaps the best slab route in Western Grit! Climb the awkward overhanging corner to the base of the upper crack and large cams. Balance left to the tantalising flake and if you are completely baffled, try a bit of lateral thinking. Follow the creaky flake to its end (slightly dubious runners) then weave a way up the final bald slab connecting a set of small 'blisters' by brilliantly intense climbing. Photo page 21. © Rockfax

Class climbing the crux isn't as confusing as everyone makes out, although my second nearly fluffed it twice and he's the grit DIVA. Gear in the flake is pretty decent, the top didn't feel like it was 5b felt 5c still but that's probably due to bricking 'um

georgeevans88 24/Nov/13 Lead dnf

Epic. Went slightly too far left at the top and slapped up for a particularly muddy bit of the break. Came off and all 3 bits of gear in the flake ripped. The only things which stopped me hitting the ground were a high side runner and Alex running down the hill to take in slack. Broken fibula!

spidermonkey09 23/Nov/13 Lead O/S

Grippy! Hard move round the bulge followed by tenuous smearing to the break. Very intense. Top confused me as there was no gear in the break and the climbing turned nails. Went up the easy arete but BMC guide suggested the easy crack in hindsight. Solid E2 anyway!

Alex Winter 22/Sep/10 Lead O/S

I'd suggest getting someone to brush the top break before going for an onsight. The last move on the slab it a bit intense on lead and it doesn't help if the top-out is covered in scrittle, grass, heather, mud and other assorted detritus. Breathtaking lead though. Probably the best route I've done on grit.
