Nausicaa Nausicaa** 6a+

Rockfax Description
The most popular route on the crag takes a direct line up the rock apron between the caves and it is almost always occupied when the crag is busy. An easy start leads to a precarious middle section over a slight bulge. © ROCKFAX

Route finding was tricky. Climbing itself is fine if you can use your feet. Nice route.

In the rain, in a hurry to get the clips back. Would have been much more fun if dry.

Paul had set up this route so i could top rope it and save the snap gates. I couldn't get my screw gate undone at the top and i got stuck. Helpfully some climbers nearby climbed upto me with a knife. Alec was able to undo my screw gate after a couple of attempts. I was free. Scary moments being stuck at the top of the crag. Very grateful to my rescuers!

Not sure how you can have a 6a+ with no holds on it at all, but this is it.
jelaby - Lead O/S - 03/Oct/13 with CoffeePot

Very sharp slabby rock route. Be prepared to be nursing sore finger tips the following day. Not a difficult route as there is so much to chose from in terms of holds, but sustained and with a couple of high feet moves.
