Rockfax Description
After a slightly artificial start (or step in from Spartacus), superb, steep blob-climbing leads to a step left where more testing moves are required before the things ease. © Rockfax

Superb pitch, even better than Spartacus. More pumpy but easier moves. Did not seem that much easier overall. Second try after a brief rest. A slight breeze helped mitigate the humidity. Seems like possibly the right grade (easy 7b), E5 6b, but I might be tired or had a duff sequence.

Awesome upper wall. Definitely felt 7b when compared to similar style routes on the island...

Pumpy wall climbing with a heinous looking(but actually amenable) bouldery thin start. Pleased with the OS on this one, probably read it wrong and had to hang in there on the hardest move !

Dogged up to work the moves but felt knackered after DNA and little sleep, so stripped it.

MIssed the O/S by a silly mistake. got it on the next go. Belayed young Mike Hopkins as he on sighted it age 14.

Morgan Woods 24/Sep/10 Lead RP

Tough one but got it done in a day. Thin start which needs dry conditions. Crux has a slightly hard to read sequence.
