Rockfax Description
Fine technical climbing which is sadly short-lived and escapable. Start up easy rock to gain the wall which is followed on some thin holds. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A little gem. The face to the left and just right of the huge pillar give fine technical climbing throughout. (From Gary Gibson website).

A mistake to try this: too cold for the fingery crux.

Got to the holds before the side pull and hung around for too long, que some tough down-climbing. Found the sequence on the next try, really good moves! Pleased to get it.

Good warm up for the area and a great gaston move off the joint sidepull with the 6c+

Sussed the nice crux but couldn't spot the far left hold before needing a rest.

Found the middle section hard and sustained. Being a small chap, had to do a couple of hard thin moves at the crux. But theres a bolt right next to you, so not worrying. For me, definitely harder than Saga Lout, though not necessarily more fun.

Lovely technical climbing between bolts 2-5. Very easy before and after that. Went direct for the crux but fell slapping up from the massive side-pull to the grassy jug. Got it 2nd go.

The good climbing is very short lived. Hard for grade if you go very direct. Unsatisfying if you don't
