Rockfax Description
A good but forgotten route. Start as for Mistaken Identity. Follow Mistaken Identity until just passed the roof. Move right past a big thread and climb up to sloping ledges. Use a crack to pass an overlap on its right and then climb straight up the slabby wall to a shallow scooped headwall. Finish directly up the steep headwall to a sound finish. © Rockfax

May have got a bit off route at the top and trended right. Harder but shorter.

We think we went a bit too far right, which sent us on less climbed ground. On second I was a bit less vigilant with the rock and pulled on a solid feeling and reasonable looking flake near the top, both me and it departed from the rock and I tested the belay, luckily clipskipper did a great job with the the mostly fairly sketchy looking rock you need to find solid anchors in. Not the first time I've climbed this route.

Did the first half onto the ledge, then because it looks like it had lost a block we finished up lichen wall. Not bad for a first route in 4 months.

Backed off hard move at the top, was a very long reach with poor sideways nuts (friends would prob be ok. great climbing up to there though, the bulging middle section is divine, great little pockets!
