Rockfax Description
A good a popular power pitch which has a dyno for many. A badly placed bolt makes it harder than it needs to be. © Rockfax

Nice end to the trip. 2nd RP today after efforts on our first day here. 7b seems fair.

Stuart William 26/May Lead RP

Tried it on the first day of the trip with no success. Went 2nd try today. Awesome route.

J1_TOV 20/May Lead RP

1st redpoint. V nice. Not a single 'wild lurch' to be found!

mikedevcole 20/May Lead dog

4 attempts I think, falling each time going for the big tufta through the steep section. Figured out a better sequence for feet in the end so hopefully next time.

Powerful rather than techy -pleased we hit this early in the trip (and got to see Francois Legrand cruise the route between our RP burns)!

First RP, could hardly believe it went so smoothly. Lovely steep route with a boulder problem exit, no need for a "wild lurch" as described in the guide.

Given 7b in the guide. Did this as Tufa king was wet.

Richard_Lowe 24/Apr/14 Lead dog

Put the draws in and repeated the crux about 10 times before finding my sequence!! One RP try, one rest at the crux. Project for next visit... Brilliant steep tufa action.

Hmmm.Seems a strange route.Not sure where the dyno was!!Climbed up to under the roof and then pulled up through the roof without too much difficulty,Not sure if I followed the line as I by passed the clip out to my right as it seemed easier to climb through than clip.Watched a few attempts after my go with people trying to go right from under the roof.Does any one know the correct way?!

Laurence Everitt 17/May/13 Lead RP

Hard to work any moves out on the left so I found a sequence closer to the bolts. A really nice route in the end.

martroberts 14/Apr/13 Lead O/S

Expected a fight and got one! Had to give everything for the dyno on pumped arms. Loved the route. Badly placed bolt made it harder than it needed to be.

Second go, pretty chuffed given how trashed I felt (another supposed to be rest day gone wrong). Agree with the stupidly placed bolt comment, probs the crux to get the draw in!
